Dilili à Paris

Michel Ocelot France, 2018

dionysus67's rating of the film Dilili in Paris

Even if it ends abruptly and occasionally one gets the impression that is laden with historical figures with no narrative function, the fact remains the Ocelot delivers another animation way above the Disney canon, providing an astute intermingling of colonial exclusion, exoticism and male sovereignty, all placed under the normative tribunal of natural law and upright carriage. Glittering, colourful, painterly-like.
