A 1987 French animation movie. I saw it in the early 90s and I remember thinking that it was pretty great and strange. Just rewatched it, still is. The animation is tight although the style might be a bit slow and corny. It was produced in North Korea apparently? Design is from a comic artist. Of course there’s the classic trope of brown skin being inferior and the very colonialist view of seeing brown folks as nice and servile. The sound design is quite awesome yet sometimes really lame.
There are good ideas and it’s nice to see another aesthetic in animation. The story is pretty smart and engaging. It’s worth watching.
