Our Little Vampire has been ten years old for 300 years, ever since that fateful day of dark magic and great danger. For 300 years, he has hidden away among a motley menagerie of monsters in a foreboding haunted house by the sea. And for 300 years, the poor kid has been bored stiff. He yearns for the mundane fun in the sunshine that other kids enjoy. His eternally lovely mother Pandora and ghastly yet gallant father, the Captain of the Dead, strictly forbid him to leave the property. With good reason – the world beyond the household’s protective dome is a dangerous one for these denizens of the dark. In the shadows lurks the sinister Gibbus, longtime nemesis of Pandora and the Captain. He and his insect minions, the kawais, are out there, but so is Michael, a neighbourhood orphan who could sure use a friend...
Talk about a film for the proverbial “kids of all ages”! Joann Sfar is among the most popular contemporary comic-book artists in France. In the last decade, he has expanded his endeavours to include distinctive works of fantastic filmmaking, animated and live-action alike, including César winners THE RABBI’S CAT and GAINSBOURG: A HEROIC LIFE. The kooky, spooky, sympathetically supernatural LITTLE VAMPIRE again adapts Sfar’s comic books to animation, in this case the beloved kids’ series co-written with Sandrina Jardel.
Midnight mischief and ghoulish good times await all ye who enter here! – Rupert Bottenberg
This psychedelic animated milkshake of twisted mysticism and streetwise thrills is possibly the most laureled film in Fantasia’s history.
The 4K restoration of the masterwork from the late anime visionary Satoshi Kon, strikingly beautiful, formally inventive, and emotionally rich.
An extremely irreverent comedy in which a nude-dash obstacle course and much more awaits fans of absurdist humour.
