      Special pictures, special music, special dialogues, and a very special ending to the story.
      The special picture lines, there are no shadows on the characters, and the simple lines combine the characters' movements so smoothly. A bit similar to the old animation of Shanghai Film Studio.
      The character design is also very good, those wooden people are a little Egyptian and a little modern.
      And the simple thought-provoking dialogue, a little cicada.
      It has been speculated...

      pure power

        It is worth noting that the film is very refreshingly simplified.
        The characters are simple. The impetuousness of the babble drives the rhythm of the film.
        Art is simple. It is decorative, beautiful, and pursues a flat effect; the composition is basically cross-sectional, running from left to right, and digging holes from left to right.
        The space is also minimal: from left to right: the village, the woods, the witch's hut, a mountain, where the grandfather...

      Simple things always have a simple attraction, it's that simple

        I'm a guy who likes to complicate things, so it's particularly attractive to see things with a simple style. A film with a very simple style and storyline... I don't think it could be any simpler. ,, When I watched it with her, I had to endure that she kept learning from the classmates in it... The beginning of the film was very humorous. The men were either eaten by witches or on the way to be eaten by witches. What's even more terrifying is that it turns out that witches don't eat...

      babble and the prince and princess

      I liked the director's other 'The Prince and the Princess' very much, and I also heard a lot of praise for Ji Ligu, so I borrowed the DVD. Based on the themes of African legends, there are naturally many mystical descriptions of life and growth. The men and women in the film are generously topless and do not hide all their sexual organs like Disney. The ending is a symbol of adulthood and the sex that goes with it. A lot of the far out part is the attraction of the film, especially the part...

      Conversation between Chiligu and Grandpa

      Grandpa, I am too small, I want to grow up.

      When you grow up, will you want to become smaller again? Now that you are small, you can enter places that others cannot enter. You should be grateful. When you grow up, you will also be grateful for being able to grow up. Be grateful, you know?

      Grandpa, can you make me bigger now?


      Don't you know everything?

      No, I know very little.

      Grandpa, how did the witch Kahaba get that big...

      "How do you want me to thank you?" "Get married!" A kiss turned the original little furry boy into a handsome man and a witch (feelings were hurt) both living together. The story of the African tribe told, so the upper body is only covered with gold. all...

      Not only is the image style outstanding, but it is also a subversive fairy tale in which a boy falls in love with a witch. The ending cannot be praised any...

      Storytelling: Since you can speak, you can walk out on your own; cut off the water first, then set fire to it, deceive people to get on the boat and then speed up, dare not get off the boat because of fear, let the boat take it anywhere; put the tempting fruit and then close the cage. Rumors inspire fear, fear of empowering witches, and people love rumours. Why are witches so bad? There are a lot of people in this world who are just bad! Only the most genuine curiosity about the world can break...

      The almighty kiss can wake a sleeping beauty; kiss a beauty into a green monster; or kiss a beauty into a frog; kiss a beast into a prince; kiss a scarecrow into a prince; The baby can be kissed into a strong man with a height of 180CM or more; the object can also be kissed into a cow, a mantis, a blue whale, a slug...or...

      I cried ah ah ah... I like this director so much, the dubbing is always the highlight! There is also the easy delivery of the mother-child relationship and the lover relationship, which is so...

    Movie quotes

    • Kirikou's Grandfather: Tell me, what if the rock had refused to open for you?

      Kirikou: I would have dug a hole...

      Kirikou's Grandfather: [chuckles as Kirikou explains]

      Kirikou: I would have used this knife, the knife from my father!

      Kirikou's Grandfather: Ah yes. It was I who gave it to him.

    • The Mother: You have grown tall and handsome, my son!

    • Kirikou: So... the Sorceress did not take the water away from the village, she did not eat the men, she prefers to eat yams... next you are going to say she's innocent and she loves everybody!

      Kirikou's Grandfather: No, no. She dislikes children, she despises women, and she hates all men!

      Kirikou: But why?

      Kirikou's Grandfather: Because she is in pain!
