When the tiny, headstrong Kirikou is ready to be born, he demands: "Mother, bring me into the world" - and, in this wonderfully original animated movie,  he never loses his hunger for life. Based on an old African fairy tale, the film explains how Kirikou sets off from his home village into the beautiful but dangerous African landscape in order to rid his fellow villagers of an evil sorceress who is ruining their lives. A magical experience quite unlike the animated movies offered by Hollywood - its opening scene of a child being born might need a little careful handling with a mixed group of KS1 Film Club members, but they will also find the story and characters totally enchanting. Originally made in French, this film has been dubbed into English.

    This film is one of my favourites. I find Kirikou interesting and funny. As soon as I saw what year it was produced in, I was very shocked,1998, wow!! The film looked like it was made in 2011. My favourite character is that funny little boy, it's like he can do anything that is dangerous and he's not afraid. This film produces so much drama, comedy and a lot of detail. The cast have done a very good job, so has the director. This is a wonderful film to watch and I would highly recommend Kirikou!!!

    I thought this film was a bit scarey because the sorceress kept setting traps.
    I liked the scarey bits. The voices were terrific they suited the characters.
    I think you should watch it with friends because of the sorceress.
