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.

    This film is excellent for age 7 upwards. Beautiful animations, empowering stories, thought provoking incidents accompanied by charming music! Our filmclub KS2 pupils loved it! I would also recommend "Kirikou et les femmes et les hommes"! Great cross-cultural link with Africa!

    Kirikou is a cute French film about the African legend 'Kirikou'. It is an excellent scene from the moment Kirikou asks his mum to let him out her womb, until he completes his job and becomes an adult. He always wanted to be one. The really old and pretty drawn animation is fab especially for younger people though it entertains everyone. It is excellent because the animations are fab and the voices are really nice. It has an excellent storyline with a cultural twist. The animals are awesome.
    Due to Kirikous size no one beleives in his knowledge and incredible intelligence and curiosity. Until he proves himself as a real great help and who saved the village from an evil Sorceress and her Fetishes. It is moving with an excellent twist. He goes through an excellent adventure and his travels to meet his grandad are funny and really nice.

    This is the best film i have watched in my film club since September.

    Kirikou is an amazing animated film that is a wonder of work and really did make me laugh from little kirikou to the sorceress herself.

    My favourite character was Kirikou, because he was very clever and very helpful boy.
    The best part was, when Kirikou pulled the thorn out of the Sorceress back.
