Kaena: La Prophétie (2003, FRA/CDN) C-85m. ** D: Chris Delaporte, Pascal Pinon. Starring (the voices of) Cécile De France, Michael Lonsdale, Victoria Abril, Francois Siener, Jean-Michel Farcy. Digitally animated fantasy adventure set on a distant planet, where girl Kaena's tribe is threatened with extinction by another species, for which they provide frequent offerings (believing them to be their gods). Some eye-popping design, but story is not well set-up, and plot is not involving enough. Remains a bit too outlandish. English version, titled KAENA: THE PROPHECY, features voice performances by Kirsten Dunst, Anjelica Huston and Richard Harris (his last screen credit).
