La cour secrète des Arcanes

I love Corto Maltese, and although I do love the books, I also quite like the animated films that have been done (five I think), and re-watching them during the summer always seems appropriate. I started off with La cour secrète des Arcanes, and just loved it so much. The quality of the animation is not really the draw – although it’s not bad – but what is is the fantastic sense of place and atmosphere, the terrific voice acting (in French), and the haunting score.
