AZUR & ASMAR (AZUR ET ASMAR) (France, 2007, 99 min.)

Once upon a time there were two boys: fair-haired and blue-eyed Azur, son of the local lord, and dark-haired, brown-eyed Asmar, son of Jenane, the nanny who raised them as brothers in a lush, green country. Life brutally separates the two friends, but Azur cannot forget his childhood friend nor his nanny’s beautiful stories set in northern Africa. All grown up, Azur sets out for the land of his dreams looking for the missing Djinn fairy. There he finds Asmar, also on a quest to find the fairy. Both will have to face the perils and spells of a land of wonders as well as each other in this animated adventure. In English. Directed by Michel Ocelot and produced by Christophe Rossignon.
