The King and the Mockingbird (eng sub) U

Paul Grimault, France, 1980, 83m.

Widely considered one of the best animated features of all time, and certainly a masterpiece of French animation, The King and the Mockingbird (Le Roi et l’Oiseau) has been cited by Studio Ghibli’s Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata as a profound influence on their work.

A collaboration between director Paul Grimault and French poet and screenwriter Jacques Prévert (Les Enfants du Paradis), it’s adapted from a fairy tale by Hans Christian Anderson about a tyrannical King who is in love with a shepherdess in a painting. The two-dimensional beauty, however, desires the dashing young chimney sweep in the frame next door. The two seek to escape the dastardly clutches of the tyrant with the help of a brightly feathered mockingbird. 

In French with English subtitles.
