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 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.
