Much of the characters and storyline seem inconsistent and odd, but as with Laloux's other films the depicted world is amazing, especially the drawing style and colors. Also, I believe this is more intended as a film for children than the previous ones, which possibly accounts for the former 'defects'. I particularly loved the planet Gamma 10. Definitely a fun watch, probably even more so for children.
a very fascinating adventure with a very unique handwriting from Moebius whose life is also strongly reflected in it, hence he could have been from the future as well. Definitely something I will show my children if I have some.
