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 »
The poetry of Jacques Prevert's text associated with the poetry of Paul Grimault's drawing renders a unique piece of cartooning associating emotions and laughters in a rare way. It would be easy to sum up the story, but it would be like summing up a poem, it'd be a crime. Let's just say it is the story about the king V and three makes 8 and 8 makes 16.
