KIRIKOU AND THE MEN AND THE WOMEN
KIRIKOU ET LES HOMMES ET LES FEMMES
2012, 87 min, France, Dir: Michel Ocelot

This third film in the trilogy featuring pint-sized child hero Kirikou weaves together a collection of short-form fables, mixing traditional storytelling and mythology with bits of humor and wit, enlivened with a vibrant use of color and an upbeat musical score from Malian, Togolese and French artists. Throughout, Kirikou is called upon to save his village from perils both supernatural and human, which he does with a combination of speed, cunning and humor – as well as a certain naiveté about the way the world really works. Recommended Ages: 7 and up. In French with English subtitles.
