This new film from renowned animation auteur Michel Ocelot (Kirikou and the Sorceress, Azur & Asmar) was a hit at the Berlin Film Festival, features black silhouetted characters set off against exquisitely detailed Day-Glo backgrounds bursting with color and kaleidoscopic patterns.The film weaves together six exotic fables where history blends with fairytale as viewers are whisked off to enchanted lands full of dragons, werewolves, captive princesses, sorcerers, and enormous talking bees – and each fable ends with its own ironic twist.
