Azur & Asmar: The Princes’ Quest
Michel Ocelot/ 2006/ France/ 90 mins/ cert U

Azur and Azmar – The Princes Quest is the latest stunningly animated film from the director of Kirikou and the Sorceress and Princes and Princesses, Michel Ocelot.

Once upon a time, one woman brought up two children, Azur, the blonde, blue-eyed son of a nobleman, and Asmar, the dark-skinned and dark-eyed child of a nurse. The boys grew up together, until fate cruelly separated them.

Years later, they meet again and embark on a quest to rescue the legendary Fairy they heard of in their bedtime stories, facing giant birds, magical creatures and a Scarlet Lion along the way.

The Princes Quest is a wonderful spin on the Arabian-nights style story. Join Azur and Asmars journey into the fairytale world of bright, vibrant colours, magical lands and unknown dangers.

The Red Balloon
Albert Lamorisse/ France/ 1956/ 34 mins/ Cert U

Albert Lamorisse's little wonder tells the story of young Pascal (Lamorisse's own son Pascal), a nine-year-old Parisian boy living an ordinary life in a sketchy but absolutely gorgeous and cinematic Parisian neighbourhood until the day that a large red balloon mysteriously floats into his life… and stays. As he plays with his new acquisition, the boy discovers that the balloon seemingly has a mind of its own. The little red orb follows its new "master" all through the streets of Paris, then dogs the boy's trail into the schoolroom, which drives the teacher to comic distraction. Towards the end, it seems as though boy and balloon will be parted forever....but director Lamorisse has a delightful surprise in store for us.
