The charming French animated movie Mune: Guardian of the Moon takes place in a fantasy world where two guardians keep the sun and the moon tethered to the planet, ensuring harmony between light and darkness. Get your head around the film’s slightly convoluted mythology and you will be rewarded by an engaging adventure in which a gentle faun-like creature and a feisty young girl made from wax must save the day after the sun gets stolen. Rob Lowe features among the English dub’s voice cast as the jock-like guardian of the sun, a big dumb blowhard whose vanity triggers the crisis.
Certificate PG. Runtime 86 mins. Directors Alexandre Heboyan, Benoît Philippon
