Dilili in Paris (Dilili à Paris) Reviews

October 10, 2019
Historical Parisian adventure is entertaining but uneven.
October 8, 2019
Michel Ocelot's combination of live film, photo-realistic images and animation brings out the magic of Paris as if were being seen for the first time.
October 8, 2019
Ocelot's intentions may be pure, but his handling of the serious social issues he tackles is so lacking in nuance that it borders on embarrassing.
October 5, 2019
At the end of the day, Dilili in Paris reaches its intended demographic with grace and a liberal amount of playfulness, truly embodying the gleeful period of French history it embeds itself within.
October 4, 2019
A French animated film about justice for women.
October 4, 2019
Exemplifies [Michel] Ocelot's lifetime contributions to a medium that, more and more, settles for fluff.
October 4, 2019
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.
October 4, 2019
The English dubbed dialogue is wobbly, but the progressive themes are brought to life by the charming young protagonist and the evocative hand-drawn visuals.
October 4, 2019
Nothing about Dilili in Paris feels natural or organic.
October 4, 2019
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.
October 4, 2019
With its stilted and repetitive pieces of expository dialogue, Ocelot clearly has a child audience in mind.
October 3, 2019
Too cerebral for children, yet too haphazardly constructed to satisfy adults.
October 3, 2019
"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.

First off, let me praise "Dilili in Paris" for its outstanding CGI animation that captures perfectly, the City of Lights."

It's absolutely astonishing to look at, a lovely visit to the City of Lights that quite literally glows... but the [English language] voice actors are all so wooden, they sound like the result of a translation program.

A kind of artistic and scientific amusement park. [Full Review in Spanish]

Ocelot has made a beautiful film that contains ideas and formidable values, from more philosophical issues such as the construction of the gaze to others of ethical spirit such as egalitarian relations or peer care. [Full Review in Spanish]

Adventure and the politesse prevail over everything. [Full review in Spanish]
February 25, 2019
'Dilili in Paris' is a kid-friendly, family film that takes viewers on an epic journey throughout Paris. Ocelot's attention to detail makes this animated film a must see.
January 8, 2019
Dilili in Paris won't completely fit the bill for its expressed modernist purpose, but children and adults would enjoy it for its staunch defence of just causes and its more than loveable main character.
