Disappointing - although there are elements of the prophet's passages, and I did find Almitra a cool little kid, the music is horrible and cheapens up the feel, and Neeson's narration leaves a lot to be desired. Various animation methods, but the soundtrack is so intrusive, and story/musical/voices so cheesey, it can't be ignored.
The book has a reputation of taking you in deeper with every page. “The Prophet” as an animated movie comes as an abridged version of the book. What a magnificent 1 hour and 20 minutes of love and wisdom. Liam Neeson's voice as “The Prophet” makes it even more wondrous and meaningful. This may become quite overwhelmingly philosophical for some. But that's what makes it what it is.
Earnest effort but unengaging film that applies the poetry of Kahlil Gibran in a story about a damaged young girl drawn out of her self exile by an imprisoned poet. Despite some wonderful segments by various animators the film fails to achieve its conceit. Tomm Moore should be given kudos for his segment.
