AZUR & ASMAR: THE PRINCES’ QUEST
Michel Ocelot, France, Belgium, Spain, Italy, United States, 2006, 99’
Once upon a time, two children were nursed by the same woman: Azur, the blonde, blue-eyed son of a nobleman, and dark-haired, dark-eyed Asmar, the nurse’s child. The boys grew up together like brothers, until fate separated them brutally. But Azur, haunted by his nurse’s tales of the legendary Fairy of the Djins, will not rest until he finds her. Now grown, and now rivals, the blood brothers embark on a quest for the Fairy. They background out in search of magical lands, rich with dangers and wonders.
