      forgive. brave. Love

            Not long ago, in a children's literature class, I watched a French film "Geego and the Witch". This is a cartoon with very strong pictures and lines, without the routine mode of an adult love story. The story is about how Ji Ligu used forgiveness and bravery to love someone who was both feared and hated.
            When I was a child, when the children were ecstatic about the finale of the witch queen in "Snow White", I was desperately trying to justify the witch in my heart. I...

      courage and love

      How innocent and innocent Xiao Jiligu is, his sense of justice is so strong, and he is so intelligent and clever, every time he saves danger, he strengthens his belief, so that the villagers can survive.

      If Chiligu is a metaphor for the growth and maturity of masculine energy, then the witch must be a metaphor for the liberation journey of feminine energy breaking the seal.

      Ji Ligu used her teeth to pull out the deep thorn on the witch's back, which represents the...

      Chiligu and the Witch is a very interesting French cartoon. (Purely speaking from my personal taste)

      Rumbling babble, asking endless questions that embarrass adults and make God dazed. In her mother's womb, she would shout, "Can you give birth to me?"

      Seeing me is really fascinated and drooling.

      It's great to have such a son. With his curiosity and imagination, he can definitely help me earn wages, and I don’t have to work hard to take care of him: he has a...

      I'm also here to join in the fun :)

      The French use animation to represent Africans, which is an interesting phenomenon in itself. In the film, both men and women are topless, and the children are naked, which can be regarded as a side expression of the French's conception of primitive tribes.
      Compared with the second part, "Griego and the Beast", the music of this one is not good enough, but the plot is more complete. It's a very simple and flat story, the characters are almost mentally naive, and the pictures are light...

      Ji Ligu is always a child

      I watched "Million Dollar Baby" last night, and it was really uncomfortable to watch, so I
      took out another movie to rush, it was "The Adventures of Jiligu".
      It's really nice!

      When Americans do animation, they can guess 100% of their ideas, and when
      Japanese do animation, they can also guess 7788,
      but French animations are really amazing, and they have completely unexpected realms and endings.
      The painting method is also very beautiful, it is the kind of...

      Cartoons often have their own exclusive logic, and if they are placed in the "real" world, it will be somewhat unreasonable. ... Although the story is still suitable for children to watch, there are so many naked pictures that some children are not suitable for it. ...I didn't expect to download the Japanese dubbed version, and I was also drunk. —— Unexpectedly, when I was sorting out the animation movies I wanted to collect, I found the Taiwanese version in Mandarin, so it was logical to show...

    Movie quotes

    • Kirikou: Did all the men go out to fight against Karaba the sorceress?

      The Mother: Oh no, but those who did not fight, she ate up as well.

    • Kirikou: [is being chased by a warthog] That was stupid of me tying the knife to my back!

      [attempts to hide, but the warthog always finds him]

      Kirikou: It is like he can see through the rocks!

      [realization hits]

      Kirikou: My scent! That's it! No use running: he smells me!

    • The Old Man: We'll take you back, but we won't take the Sorceress!
