First Trailer For Ocelot's Kirikou: Men And Women!

3 August 2012 9:30 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

Michel Ocelot's little (literally) African boy is returning to the big screen! The French master animator first rose to international prominence with his feature film Kirikou And The Sorceress, an African folktale about a tiny little boy who must free his village from oppression by a local sorceress. Kirikou proved a huge hit, spawning books and a second film since and now Ocelot is poised to return for a third go-round.Titled Kirikou: Men And Women this third film returns us to the village where Kirikou again proves himself wiser than his size may indicate.The first trailer has just arrived and while it appears that Ocelot has updated the visual style slightly from the first offerings the tweaks are minor and it certainly appears to »

24 February 2012 10:48 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As announced a year or so ago, the tiny Senegalese hero Kirikou is returning for yet another animated adventure titled Kirikou et les hommes et les femmes (Kirikou And The Men And Women). Director Michel Ocelot is currently working on the third installment of a trilogy which began with the universally-acclaimed Kirikou and the Sorceress (1998), and continued with Kirikou and the Wild Beasts (2005). Notably, this will be the first film in the franchise to be produced in stereoscopic 3D, a format Ocelot used for the first time on Tales of the Night. Kirikou et les hommes et les femmes is scheduled to reach French screens on February 13, 2013, and I'm looking forward to yet another sumptuous piece of animation starring our brave tiny hero, using his wits and speed to thwart evil Sorcery and save his village from supernatural and environmental perils. Co-written by the director with Bénédicte Galup, Susie Morgenstern and Cendrine. »

French animator Michel Ocelot rose to international acclaim in 1998 with the release of his animated feature Kirikou And The Sorceress, the story of a very small and very brave boy whose village is under the thumb of an angry sorceress based on African folk tales.Though Ocelot has certainly ventured away from his diminutive hero in the years since Kirikou has always been around in the background. There was a second feature film, there have been books and in February of 2013 Ocelot will release his third Kirikou feature into French theaters. Titled Kirikou: Men And Women this one is being produced in 3D and the first stills have just been released. Plenty of familiar faces lie within including - obviously, since she's right »

Plot: A group of animated actors act out a series of folktales from around the world.

Who’S It For? Fans of folktales and fairy tales who appreciate stylish animation.

Overall

Ocelot, director of 1998′s Kirikou and the Sorceress, directs another film about folktales and fables. This time, a man and woman in a theater act out the parts from a series of stories about princes, princesses, good and evil. The stories were interesting, and all new to me. I got very caught up in some of them. But the most remarkable feature of the film is the animation styles. »

Glasgow Film Festival 2012: ‘Tales of the Night’ a hugely enjoyable film from ‘Kirikou’ director

11 February 2012 7:01 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Tales of the Night

Written and directed by Michel Ocelot

France, 2011

French director Michel Ocelot is perhaps best known for his animated films Kirikou and the Sorceress, that film’s sequel, and Azur & Asmar: The Princes’ Quest. His latest feature Tales of the Night is an anthology film made up of six short allegorical folk tales. Derived from his television series Dragons et princesses, it extracts material from five episodes of that show, in addition to containing a sixth new tale. That root in an established television series is perhaps the film version’s only weakness; its recurring creative framing device for the stories is pleasantly unique, but there is no real elaboration regarding it for anyone unfamiliar with the show it perhaps comes from. Additionally, the film just ends after the final story’s conclusion, not returning to the characters of the framing device for a farewell, as though »
