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 Originally made in French, this film has been dubbed into English.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 like the part when Kirikou kissed the wizard.

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

    I like Kirikou because it is funny and some is scary . The part that is scary is when Kirikou drowns. But did not die .

    I like the film because it was all different to any other film I have seen. Everyone thinks Kirikou is not who he is when he comes back with someone... I don't think I would watch it again even though it was quite intresting with lot's of different feelings. Kirikou loves his adventures.
