How's this for a cross Egyptian-Bushman mural pose?
Based on a series of West African folk tales, we follow the adventures of Kirikou, a new-born boy with special powers, as he sorts out the various problems besetting his village, all of which are caused by the evil sorceress. Note that although this animated film has an ''All Ages'' rating, the women are well endowed and topless, and the kids (up to about age 12 or 13) are all totally nude. The opening scene features Kirikou birthing himself, which may lead to some unwanted questions from the little ones.

Ian Douglas: It took a while to adjust to the nudity in an animated feature. Not sure if it is there partly to provide eye candy for the adults accompanying the kids. The story and animation are certainly kiddie-friendly, but be prepared for questions about the origins of life and the differences between boys and girls... :-)
Luis G.Gonzalez (22): Excelent!
Linda Mansker (47): I saw this, and thought it was a great story. I realise some have concerns about the nudity, but I found that if one doesn't make an issue, the kids won't. Great story.
