A fabulously beautiful Arabian Nights-style story about two re-united half-brothers, one white, one black, and their adventures seeking a genie in a far-off land. From the same team that made Kirikou & The Sorceress, the incandescent pictorial style has no peer or comparison in modern cinema. It's a style taken from Persian miniatures, medieval illuminated manuscripts, Henri Rousseau and Carl Fabergé - all at once.

Suitable for aged 10 and above

"This man just makes beautiful cinema: cinema whose every frame could be hung on an art gallery wall." The Financial Times
