Critic Reviews for Gandahar (Light Years)

All Critics (1)

A very enjoyable film to watch. Maybe not as classic or creepy as "La Planète Sauvage" but it can safely be called a companion piece to that movie.

Audience Reviews for Gandahar (Light Years)

This average time-travel science-fiction fantasy is Laloux's most efficient feature-length animation of the three he made, with a great score and a plot that is more interesting than Fantastic Planet and more focused than Time Masters.
