Every evening, a girl, a boy and an old projectionist meet in a cinema that seems abandoned but is full of wonders. The three friends invent, draw, disguise themselves and imagine they are the heroes of fairytales. From the depths of the Earth to the borders of the Orient, they rival one another with imaginative ideas to play princesses and adventurers: “The Mistress of Monsters”, “The Schoolboy Sorcerer”, “The Ship’s Boy and his Cat” and “Ivan Tsarevich and the Changing Princess”. After his masterpieces Kirikou and the Sorceress and Azur & Asmar, Michel Ocelot brings us a new jewel of animated movie-making in which the beauty of the drawings and the poetry of the stories glide us smoothly into a dreamlike world, so characteristic of this director.
