Two clans of snakes cohabit in the desert. Beautiful green serpents that live under the shelter of an oasis, protected and venerated by men and venomous snakes that survive in the sand, dust and heat, hunted and killed by the Tuaregs. Here is the story of Ajar, a young venomous serpent, laughed at by his peers because he still has not done his first molt and that of Eva, rebellious princess of the oasis who wants to escape an arranged marriage. These two will meet and fall in love. Alas, Eva will be kidnapped by the Tuaregs and Ajar, accompanied by his best friend, Pitt the Scorpion, will have to cross the ruthless Sahara to save Eva from the terrible fate awaiting her.

Found it on Netflix
12 May 2017 | by tofrimSee all my reviews

Never heard of it, just put it on cause we couldn't find anything else. It looked like an old movie until we put it on and the animation was really good. The story unfolds a bit slow, but entertaining. Well worth our time. Both me, my gf and our daughter (7 years old) loved it.

I see it gets low review scores here, which is odd, cause it was much better than many of the best animated films this year.

So I'm wondering..why haven't anyone heard of this movie? Whoever tried to promote this movie did a horrible job. Shame on you. It's sad to see only the big animated movies win. If I ever saw a trailer of this movie, I can't remember it. There are many funny characters here too. Really well animated etc. Still, even in the pictures section here on IMDb it's really lacking content. Really strange!

A good movie, but something went really wrong when this came out. Hope those somebody can learn from it and make more movies. It's also probably. One of the first movies that make "the evil" creatures like snakes and scorpions into heroes. That concept would easily look stupid, but this works.
