Critic Reviews for Dilili in Paris (Dilili à Paris)
Photorealistic backgrounds consistently stun as they clash with the more low-res CG characters, which emulate designs from early 21st century video games rather than fully accomplished animated characters for a production made this decade.
Nothing about Dilili in Paris feels natural or organic.
Clunky animation, canned voices and connect-the-dots plotting play just fine to preschoolers on the small screen, but our eyes, ears and imaginations expect more from a feature, and this one irritates each of those potential receptor points.
"Dilili in Paris" is instead an awkward misfire, the more regrettably so for showcasing a kind, smart and brave mixed-race girl from New Caledonia as its young protagonist.
Writer/director Michel Ocelot bit off more than he could chew here. He's clearly trying to express ideas about female empowerment set in a particularly formative period of history, but he's fighting a war on too many fronts.
Audience Reviews for Dilili in Paris (Dilili à Paris)
Ocelot wants to tackle themes that are a lot more ambitious than what he is used to, like racism, misogyny and feminism, but the result feels mostly harmless and didactic, especially as he delights in showing dozens of animated versions of famous names from the Belle Époque.
