Kirikou and the Sorceress

Anybody seen this animated film? Its available in KPS on DVD and gets a whopping 100% freshness rating on Rottentomatoes

Plus plus, for all you Omnis out there, [quote]It sounds harmless enough. What upset director Michel Ocelet’s critics was the fact that the little urchin spends the whole movie in his birthday suit, chatting to the bare-breasted women of his village before battling the slinky, evil sorceress who’s blackmailing them into poverty.[/quote]

I saw it on Taiwan’s PTS and I loved it.
