Every semester that I took French in college, we were required to attend our campus' French Film Festival and write a paper on one of the movies presented. Last Spring, Azur et Asmar was one of the choices. Weird, depressing foreign film? Or foreign kids' cartoon? You know what I picked to go see! This movie is amazing. The production quality is amazing and the story is so cute and funny!
Unfortunately, Chris wasn't able to see it with me and I knew I had to get a copy of it to show him. I debated with ordering it online, but decided to Netflix it instead. And it came today! I can't WAIT to watch it!
Here is a great review of the movie in case you're interested, and I'll post a few screen shots below. It truly is a gorgeous movie, and I definitely suggest seeing it if you ever get the chance!
UPDATE: So we just finished watching it (in English this time) and Chris really liked it! And I'd forgotten how much I adore the Princess in the movie! She's totally my favorite character. All in all, it was a nice final birthday surprise!
