Festival favourite Michel Ocelot (Kirikou and the Sorceress, The Princes’ Quest) returns with another beautifully animated film, this time based around six folk stories from Central Africa, the Aztec City of Gold, medieval Europe, the Caribbean and Tibet. A trio of storytellers try to outdo one another with their tales of dragons, werewolves, magical drums and much more. The animation is simple and beautiful, the stories are charming, inventive and witty and the film is a delight to behold.
