Still entertaining but not as good as the 1st part
22 February 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A spin off of the first movie with four separated stories about the daily life in Kirikou's village.

The movie is lovely, the stories very entertaining and original, our favourite characters are still there, and, most importantly, the movie offers glimpses of the life in a West-African village, which are precious to show to a Western audience of children. The stories will show kids that not everybody is the same, dresses the same, or lives the same, that Africa is an amazing beautiful varied continent, and that the world is richer because of that.

Like in the first movie, Ocelot's drawings and visuals are simple, very attentive to landscape and plant drawing, very ethnographic in a a way. The stories, though, have a good dollop of magical reality.

Overall, the movie doesn't have the energy and spark of the first movie as the different stories are unrelated -except for the fact that Kirikou and his neighbors are in them- and they are also plainer, less engaging, and more for children than for adults.
