after Une Vie De Chat, another inventing cartoon by Felicioli and Gagnol.
Phantom Boy is a real cool title for this cartoon directed by the duet Jean-Loup Felicioli and Alain Gagnol, who directed the happily surprising Une Vie De Chat in which we could recognize references and fast action from American classic movies (Night Of The Hunter and others).
In Phantom Boy, we recognize references to french popular cinema, from Fantomas to Le Passe-Muraille. And this story of a sick kid is over- charged with emotion, he is fighting against illness by fighting against a dangerous future and totally insane master of the world, and we unfortunately do have some very sad examples in the world.
So thank you to the directors for their very courageous Phantom Boy, the young kids who saw this movie learned a lot about Life and they just can't wait for their next movie. These kids recognized some scenes and characters from Une Vie De Chat, they are real young movie lovers.
Last remark : Phantom Boy is another great french inventive movie with no review on IMDb. So sad.
