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.

    I really enjoyed this film. It was about an extremely intelligent baby who is under estimated by all the other people in the village - including the adults. Even though he was born talking, walking and asking questions, the people continue treating him like a child, which seriously frustrated Kirikou. I'm not going to give away anymore because I've already said too much. If you really are interested about hearing the malicious sorceress part, then watch the film!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is absolutely fantabulous!!!!!!!

    To be honest, I thought better could have come out of the film.

    It digs deep into the story of African life and can be interesting at some parts.

    Overall I don't like this film. It is very strange about the idea of a nude baby and just, don't like it.

    The main character is a boy that goes on amazing adventures in this fantasy animation. The film is set in Africa, where the animals look really different to the animals in England. The film is for children aged 8 years and over because the sorceress can be quite scary for young children. For me, the moral of the story is that you should believe in yourself and stand up for what is right.

    Kirikou and the sorceress is a movie that tells an amazing story. It is based on a boy who is very young ,inquisitive and courageous. This film is about how he protects the other villagers children and his family. He also wants to know why the sorceress - who has power over them - is so selfish so he goes on a treacherous adventure to seek his grandfather who is one of the few people who know why.

    When Kirikou finds out why he dreams of making everything right once more and freedom for his village. I found this story very uplifting and different from other movies and I adore the African culture involved in it. However the sorceress's boat and tree reminds me of something from spirited away (like an evil spirit).

    I love all the morals in this movie like have courage and make use of your differences as not everyone is the same ( they're the morals that stuck out for me). I'm not the keenest on the fact that it's a cartoon but when watching it, it didn't bother me too much.When watching the movie I loved the way Kirikou said his thoughts out loud and that often made it quite a humorous scene.

    I'm going to end my review by saying that you can learn a lot by watching this film.
