French 3D animated film released in 2014. A poetic tale of a little faun named Mune, a Guardian of the Moon who has to recover the Sun that was stolen by his fault.
“Mune: Guardian of the Moon” delights with its glamourous visual side. Some critiques recognised the influences of Salvador Dali’s paintings as well as inspirations of the animation styles of Luc Besson, Tim Burton and Hayao Miyazaki.
The film was directed by Benoît Philippon and Alexandre Heboyan, based on the script written by Jérôme Fansten and Philippon himself. Characters were voiced by, among others, Michael Gregorio, Omar Sy and Izïa Higelin.
“Mune: Guardian of the Moon” was nominated for the Best Feature Film award at Annecy International Animated Film Festival. It won the Young People’s Jury Award at the TIFF Kids International Film Festival and the Best Film Award at the Tokyo Anime Awards.
Recommended for children from the age of 8.
