The movie really symbolizes a deeper meaning with Kirikou pulling the thorn out of the evil women. It is supposed to symbolize her being rapped that is why she is taking all of the men. She has a team of robots working for her that the men got turned into that really symbolizes the coming of modernity. It over rides tradition and really becomes dominant by the end of the movie. Unlike most American movies the main hero actually takes charge and does things. In most movies it is followed by a lot of build up to the hero actually becoming the hero. In this movie they cut right to the chase. It makes it a lot easier to follow and more interesting.
The movie itself is really done beautifully. The color contrast makes it such a beautiful movie to watch. The movie also has a great soundtrack to follow along to. It could easily get stuck in your head while watching. The drawings are very authentic and not very detailed. It makes you focus more on the lines and what is going on in the film.
Now this sounds like a very disturbing movie but really it isn't. The men come out completely fine in the end and were never actually in any harm and the nudity shown is very cartoonised. A lot of parents I'm sure would have a big problem showing this to young children, however I don't see anything wrong with showing them. It was not that bad in my opinion. You don't even notice. I'd recommend it for a good fairy tale for children of all ages.
