Did You Know?
The visual style and animation garnered mixed reception. Contemporary Hungarian movie reviewers harshly criticized the French creators' storytelling and Moebius' character designs, arguing that they don't meet the standards of science fiction movies. Members of the general public on the other hand often commented that the art direction was good, but the animation by Hungary's Pannónia Film Stúdió was uneven and poor, and that the studio was probably used because they were cheap. Editor and sound editor Dominique Boischot
claimed the film could only have been created at Pannónia, because their animators were very experienced at facial expressions and body language. However, the comments of Marcell Jankovics
, one of Pannónia's in-house directors, discredit this notion, as he claims many of the studio's in-betweener animators were in reality really bad at facial animation. See more
