Movie Info

Travel to the upper reaches and lower depths of Paris in the Belle Epoque with Dilili, a graceful young girl with eagle-eyed smarts as she investigates the mysterious plot of the Master Men. Together with Orel, a delivery boy who ferries her around the sweeping photo-realistic and jewel-toned landscape as only expert animator Michel Ocelot could conceive, Dilili will stop at nothing until justice is restored. Our super sleuths journey through a turn-of-the-century world so evocative, you just might spot Picasso, Proust, or Marie Curie.

Critic Reviews for Dilili in Paris (Dilili à Paris)

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (4)

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.

October 4, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

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.

It is both an old story, and one that we must continue to tell.

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.
