80 minutes short French animated feature movie. The story of a six year old boy who involved in saving the tiny magical creatures. A similar kind of movie to 'Le Tableau'. After all, this was the first movie to release. I have not seen a single European animation since last few months, so decided to go with it and I had a nice time. Firstly, I thought it was a children's movie, yes it was and as a grown up I was not annoyed instead enjoyed it like a kid.

A young boy called Nat, for him reading is a complicated issue. He always gets teased by his elder sister. On one summer his family decides to relocating to their ancestral house in a small town. He and his sisters remembers their grandmother who tells children's stories during visits to see her. After her death, they come to know that she left some gifts for them. Financially suffering his family decides to get rid of old things from the house. Nat mistakenly discovers the tiny creatures who need his help to save their existence. So the boy's quest begins to do something for others. The beautiful adventures are portrayed in the remains.

''Just because it was invented doesn't mean it isn't real''

Technically, it sounds great. The animation was very good and the characters were so cute. The story was not bad, but a little crawl in the adventure section. As it was a short movie, you won't get any frustration. A short and lovely movie for family and kids. If 'The Avengers' is for adults, then this movie is for kids. All the famous characters from kids stories came together for this. Sadly, everyone had less time to spare to show their existence in the movie, but I expected a lot more. All in all it is still a nice movie to have. If any parents reading my this review kindly show it to your kids as well.

7.5/10

Once again a non-US film, so unknown for Flixster...special prize to whoever advise me a more universal app'...Well, went to see that with my 5 y.o. nephew, but it was a good one (for that age), quality children cinema.

finally a nice french movie... just it's not too original, the story is already seen, even some scenes are already seen... and then why this graphic style so similmanga? we are in europe!
Un film francese carino... peccato che non sia affatto originale, la storia è risaputa, le scene sono stracopiate da Lemony Snicket e da diversi film di Miyazaki, e a proposito di giapponesi, perchà (C) usare uno stile così simile ai manga? per tutto il tempo dovevo ricordarmi che non si svolgeva in Giappone, ma quei bambini con le teste grosse lo rendevano troppo difficile!

Preuve une fois encore, avec "Kerity, la maison de contes" que les bonnes intentions ne donnent pas necessairement de bons films. L'idee the)orique etait en tous points admirable : on ne peut qu'applaudir cette volonte de souligner l'importance de la lecture pour que puissent perdurer les histoires contenues dans les livres. Et le fait d'en faire une petite odyssee jardinière à la "Cherie j'ai retreci le gamin analphabète" avec des Minimoys tout droit jaillis des contes de fee aurait pu fonctionner si le traitement n'avait pas ete aussi calamiteux. La ruine de tous ces bons principes se retrouve tout d'abord dans un graphisme particulièrement affreux et des dialogues pauvres et interpretes sans aucune conviction. Le statisme de l'action, veritable plaie de la plupart des productions enfantines europeennes grand-public ecrase le film sous une chape de plomb , et même les sequences devolues a l'action manquent leur cible (l"attaque d'un crabe de la taille d'un camion aurait pu être chouette mais non, même pas) ne recèlent aucun ressort, aucun rythme. Reinterpreter ou travailler en profondeur (voire même "moderniser", quelles que soient les connotations negatives qu'on peut lui accoler) les caracteristiques des figures celèbres du conte aurait-il pu sauver "Kerity" du naufrage? Peut-être, si les auteurs n'avaient pas ete aussi timores : l'ogre a la dalle, Pinocchio ment et la fee Carabosse est mechante, point barre. Aucune intention ici de sortir du canevas des siècles passes. C'est du "Comme dans les contes", avec un touche graphique de production bulgare. "Kerity" souffre finalement du problème recurrent de nombre de productions europeennes reservees à la jeunesse : d'excellentes idees mais d'infranchissables difficultes pour les rendre attrayantes (encore qu'un "Brendan et le Secret de Kells" avait prouve qu'une production europeenne pouvait sans difficultes concurrencer l'ecrasante mainmise americano-nippone sur l'animation pour gosses).

"c'est pas parce que c'est inventé que ça n'existe pas"
musique très jolie, conte de contes très agréable à regarder et très bien fait (à déconseiller aux trop petits)! Comme quoi, on peut très bien faire un bon film sans avoir recours à tous ces artifices de numérique et de 3d!

de vez en cuando la animación francesa nos regala joyitas sorprendentes..... quizás esta no es la más producida ni visualmente impactante, pero en su sencillez nos envuelve y nos lleva a la infancia.

Beautifully animated. Lovely story about a boy who has difficulty reading stepping into a world filled with literary characters. Would have preferred French with English subtitles to an English overdub though!
