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 Originally made in French, this film has been dubbed into English.

    I liked it Kirikou is tiny but brave everyone thinks the sorceress is bad but the sorceress is not actually a sorceress . i love this film my favourite part was when Kirikou said "why is Karaba the Sorcerss evil ( wicked) .

    I like the part when Kirikou kissed the wizard.

    I didn't like the the part when they hit the wizard.

    I liked it in the beginning when kirikou popped out of know where. I also enjoyed the end when everyone was back together.

    I thought it was very good because, it was adventurous film and was different from any film I have ever seen also the mane character was very clever strong kind and always stood up for him self . my favourite character was Kirikou because he was always standing up for is people.
