From the depths of his blue cave, Kirikou’s grandfather declares: “The story of Kirikou and The Witch was too short. There was not the time to tell all that Kirikou has accomplished. For he has accomplished many fine things, which it would be wrong to forget. Listen, then, as I tell you more tales of Kirikou.” And so Kirikou’s grandfather starts to tell how the clever little boy learnt to become a gardener, a detective, a maker of pottery, a merchant, a traveler and a doctor, all while remaining, as ever, the smallest and bravest of heroes. African textiles inspired the animated film’s palette of ambers, ochers, and brightly colored patterns, and the film’s lush soundtrack brings together acclaimed musicians Youssou N’Dour from Senegal, Rokia Traoré from Mali, and Manu Dibango from Cameroon. A sweet fable from the producer of The Triplets of Belleville. –Celluloid Dreams
