Whoever thinks that the countryside is calm and peaceful is mistaken. In it we find especially agitated animals, a Fox that thinks it's a chicken, a Rabbit that acts like a stork, and a Duck who wants to replace Father Christmas. If you want to take a vacation, keep driving past this place.
Kiriku is a beautiful 2D French animation in five tails that unveil the everyday life at a small village in Africa. In all of them, the little kid Kiriku shows up his smartness and kindness to help his people and even some unexpected visitors. In the first one, Kiriku figures out a way to help a fat woman that needs to fix her home's roof; in the second he tricks the fearsome witch who lives near the village, to find the whereabouts of the missing elder; in the third tail Kiriku and the other children spot a mysterious blue creature and so they try to figure out what it is; the next tail shows a storyteller old woman that come by the village; and in the last one the wind whips the village bringing all the noise directly to the ears of the witch, so Kiriku has to make two babies stop crying and his mommy teaches him a magic way to perform this trick. This movie is extremely cool and it brings a lively impression of "otherness", but deprived of "exoticism". A nice option for kids and sensitive grown people.
