When the tiny, headstrong Kirikou is ready to be born, he demands: "Mother, bring me into the world" - and, in this wonderfully original animated film, he never loses his hunger for life. Kirikou may be tiny, but he is mighty, and his fellow villagers sing his praises as he helps them fix their problems. When the village is threatened by the evil sorceress Karaba, who has made all the men disappear, it is little Kirikou who is entrusted with the task of putting a stop to her wicked ways. Beautifully animated landscapes and folk songs bring this traditional African tale to life.

    Kirikou is about an African village under a terrible spell that has been placed on it by the sorceress Karaba. Kirikou decides to save the village and begins his adventure by setting out to find the Wise Man in the Forbidden Mountain. Kirikou was again satisfactory not one of the better films in film club because there were massive plot holes in the story and the general story was not the best there were many points when pieces of the plot could have been explained better. However the story shows heart, bravery and determination and that is how Kirikou was able to overcome diversity but this only a small consolation.

    Kirakou is a good film for children but not for over the age of 15. I rate this 1 star because it is not my type of film. There is a lot of cartoon nudity that I found very off putting and irrelevant to have. The animations are poor and the vocals are poor quality too. I think that only children would appreciate this film.

    Kiriku is a film that didn’t really appeal to me and this is for many reasons. The other thing was that it didn’t really make sense. This is unrealistic because that would never happen in real life. Even though it was, in my opinion, a bad film I still think it had some good aspects such as creativity and at times comedy.

    A small African boy named Kirikou is born into an African village.. He appeared as a small innocent child that nobody seemed to care about. He casted a horrific spell. Some men of the village had been kidnapped or somehow disappeared. He wanted to get rid of the village curse so he went on a trip to the Forbidden Mountain, where a Wise Man of the Mountain, who knew of Karaba and her secrets, awaited him.

    Kirikou, a small boy living in an African village, risked his life against the evil sorceress. He was very smart and could speak when he was born. His journey to save his small village required endurance, hard work and determination. The evil sorceress had an evil plan though, which could destroy Kirikou’s village and put an end to all of them.
    Is it worth being small in this big world? Will Kirikou succeed in his adventure in this big world, or will he give up?
    We like the visual effects and the setting, which we thought were unique. We also like the music as well as Kirikou’s tiny but clever character.
    We didn’t like some of the Sorceress’ clothes, and the fact the villagers were not wearing clothes. We also thought that the ending was a little simple and disappointing.
