Predictable, but in style
4 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

'Les enfants de la pluie' is very predictable (for a person with at least some experience in reading sci-fi it is easy to guess how the plot will develop and how it all will end). At the same time I liked the drawings, the style of cartoonists. As compared with, say, 'Les maitres du temps' it is regrettably less gripping, but it makes a bit more sense in the long run.
