REVIEW

“Michel Ocelot, le créateur de “Kirikou”, repousse une fois de plus les limites de l’enchantement et du merveilleux grâce à une époustouflante créativité picturale et chromatique.”-Le nouvel observateur

“While “‘Dilili in Paris” is skewed to a younger audience, there is still a lot to enjoy for astute adults who can appreciate the beauty, art, and literature of the (Belle Epoque) time period, as well as a bold proto-feminist message and a loveable yellow-ribboned heroine…It sounds like a cross between Woody Allen’s “Midnight in Paris” and the animated noir of Jean-Loup Felicioli and Alain Gagnol’s ‘ A Cat in Paris’ but it’s…more kid friendly.” – Jake Watt, Switch
