Still entertaining but not as good as the 1st part
Imdbidia from Australia
22 February 2011
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.
