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 very strange and i don't really get the concept of it whereas in some places it is quite cleaver how they place the character in strange places and the art design is beautiful and the creature is very ominus.

    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.
