Enchanting, Beautiful, Repetitive, Cute, Original

See it if you want to be mesmerised by innovative shadow puppetry, you have a younger child who enjoys colours and shapes (but who doesn't?)

Don't see it if you dislike little kid commentaries, you want plot and dialogue, you don't want to exercise your imagination

Think of a symphony of non-conceptual art — shapes, colors, shadow and light. Animation meets original music by Laurent Rochelle in a novel way. 'Cité' is whimsical and existential all at the same time. The monochromatic colors are sharp and deep, while the abstract imagery is entertaining and clever."
