The Prince’s Voyage
(Le Voyage du Prince)

  •   Jean-François Laguionie, Xavier Picard
  •   France, Luxembourg
  •   Global Currents, In Focus: French Animation

From master French animator Jean-François Laguionie comes an unusual and astute tale of friendship, tolerance, and revelation. After a stately monkey prince alights injured in an unfamiliar land, he is rescued by 12-year-old Tom, the bright and inquisitive child of two scientists, who have their own interest in the curious simian. As the audacious boy and the aging royal embark on a series of adventures, their capacity for mutual respect and understanding begins to erode the borders between their worlds.

“It should readily attract longterm fans of [Laguionie’s] work and those seeking animation with sophisticated substance as well as a distinctive style.”
