This charming animated film tells the story of Moon Man, a lonely being in outer space who has no idea how much he is loved by children everywhere. One night, he decides to leave his boring homeland by grabbing onto the tail of a shooting star as it passes by. The comet sends him hurtling towards Earth, where his crash landing sets alarm bells ringing in the presidential headquarters. The President of the World, having just conquered everything there is to conquer on his planet, won’t tolerate this alien invasion from the moon. It’s up to an eccentric inventor and the children of the world to save our intrepid voyager from the clutches of the power-hungry president. Based on the beloved bestseller by Tomi Ungerer, this lovely work of hand-drawn animation is a magical illustrated marvel. In English.
