An odd invention of hand-drawn animation has arrived in the U.S. to enthusiastic critical acclaim. The French-made cartoon caper
Doug Cummings (FilmJourney.org) calls it "the eye-candy movie of the year. Virtually every shot in the film is astonishing in its pictorial beauty." He writes, "While the film's humor has a more sardonic edge to it (it's not geared for younger children), the movie never descends into cynicism. Its characters are dedicated and loving, and challenge heroic stereotypes."
Movieguide's critic calls it "a very clever, funny animated movie. If a couple of scatological scenes were removed, the movie would be entertaining and acceptable."
