MovieMail's Review

Azur et Asmar is beautiful. Inspired, in part, by the work of Lotte Reiniger, and sitting perfectly alongside Ocelot’s earlier work, Kirikou and the Sorceress, it’s a fairy tale adventure with a global resonance, centring on relations between races and cultures. The fantastical story centres on the adventures of a young man who sets out to find a fabled fairy princess. His adventures test heart, mind and body and it’s thrilling to watch unfold. It reminds us how powerfully a film can use all the attractions of entertainment to explore the bigger picture. The film is sumptuously designed and a little unexpected in its animation style. As such, it is totally compelling. Ocelot has explained how his childhood relates to his filmmaking: “I knew nothing but happiness in Africa …there were Catholics, Protestants, Animists, Muslims. It was natural and I internalised this relaxedness … I have memories of jubilation from gazing at passers-by ... I became conscious of beauty – of people, of clothing, of lanscapes…”
