It's too bad The Little Prince isn't heading for theaters in the U.S., but apparently Netflix is picking it up. I realize the book the animated film is based on isn't required reading there the way it is in French-speaking countries, but the movie is in no way a straight adaptation of Saint-Exupéry's classic. It's in there, but as a story TOLD within a larger framework which merely uses the book's themes of friendship, sincerity, grief and imagination. And while I love the papery stop-motion of those sequences, today's more standard CG animation of the frame tale is as good, original and expressive as anything put out by Pixar, Disney or Dreamworks. What we really have is something akin to Up, in which a young girl living in a too-ordered gray world where everything must be made "essential" befriends an old man living in a chaotic patchwork house, and learn to access her imagination. Full of charm and fun, like the book, it's a real tear-jerker too (doubly so for me because the "voices" I hear reading the story in my head have all passed away), though the pacing runs into some trouble in the final act's adventurous dream, since it seems like we've already hit the climax by then. But well worth seeing, whether you know the book or not.

Too bad this web site does not know that the original title is in French: Le Petit Prince - just like the original classic book!
A bit too hard for younger kids to understand. But quite cosy movie.

Watching this reminded me of A Monster in Paris. For some reason the flow of the film was choppy and a bit awkward. The animation itself was great!
