Awa Sene Sarr,
The film was recently "restored" in a deluxe 2 DVD set currently available (2005) in France. Apparently this version restores the original intentions of Grimault and Prevert. It is not currently available in an English Language version. The publicized running time of this DVD version is 81 minutes confirming that additional material was added by the producer against the wishes of the writer and director. See more »
I saw this film when I was a child and it mesmerized me. I saw it recently and my fascination for this film hasn't declined. This film is a marvel. Among its particularities that are quite numerous, let's quote: the beauty of the landscapes , the harmony of the colors, the perfection of music and especially the irony of the dialogues which is not surprising as they were written by Jacques Prévert. Moreover, in this film (which was awarded by the "Louis Delluc" price in 1979 and it deserved it), Paul Grimault's goal is to show us his hatred of the tyranny and his defence in favour of the poor and the weak. The film shows a great contrast concerning this thema: the king and his court lives in modernity, in the light and in gigantic palace whereas the population lives in darkness, in obscurity and in poverty. As a conclusion sentence: a wonderful animation film which is much better than any Disney films
