This week, we will have a look of French animated films in 2015. It was a great year for France with 4 distinctive movies (these three along with April and the Extraordinary World, which I enjoyed) that could rival any year this decade. It’s interesting to look at the settings of these films as well as literally they are all over the place. April takes place in an alternative steampunk Paris, Long Way North is about Russian aristocrat on her journey to the North Pole, Phantom Boy takes place in whimsical New York and Adama is in a West African village. France has always been one of the leading markets in animation, and I’m glad that the country still intends to keep the art of hand-drawn animation alive and healthy. Merci.
