There is only a short step from cartoons to cinema! That is no surprise, since they share a common language: a story told in a sequence of images. Usually cartoons are adapted to the cinema, but sometimes things go the other way and a film is adapted into a cartoon. That is particularly true when the film is created by a famous comic album writer or illustrator, as in the cases of Tardi for April and the Extraordinary World or Goscinny and Uderzo for The Twelve Tasks of Asterix. Whether it is the indomitable Gauls who continually send invaders packing or the four famous, nasty and amusing bandits from the west in stripy outfits, these colourful characters do not mince their words and it is no surprise to see them given a chance to make their voices heard. The border between the 7th and 9th arts is very thin... Seven films that can be enjoyed from ages 5-6 and help youngsters progress from pages to the screen - and vice versa!
