Critic Reviews of "April and the Extraordinary World"Chicago ReaderMay 05, 2016
Should appeal to precocious children... Adults may find it as derivative and simplistic as the steampunk aesthetic to which it's indebted, but for a gateway to more resonant cinema and literature, you could do worse.Philadelphia InquirerApril 15, 2016
April and the Extraordinary World will have your imagination doing somersaults and cartwheels.Arizona RepublicApril 14, 2016
"April and the Extraordinary World" is a visual delight, an animated French steampunk adventure that is smart, exciting and wonderfully weird.Washington PostApril 07, 2016
In truth, the story is practically beside the point with all the spectacular visuals.Boston GlobeApril 07, 2016
A delightfully deranged steampunk adventure.San Diego ReaderApril 07, 2016
Fun, fast-paced French film d'animation that manages to keep its ideas from getting lost amid the steampunk aesthetics, frequent chases, and occasional explosions.Punch Drunk CriticsJanuary 09, 2017
As much as April and the Extraordinary World veers around a little too often and gets too self-indulgent with its exposition, the film effectively builds a whole other steampunk-inspired world in which viewers can get lost, gas masks and all.South China Morning PostJune 01, 2016
This hand-drawn animated feature by first-time directors Christian Desmares and Franck Ekinci is a steampunk marvel that will enchant both kids and adults with its high-concept premise.The Straits Times (Singapore)May 31, 2016
Given how sumptuous the details are in every scene, the alternate universe here, even as far from reality as it is, is conceivably real.The Young FolksMay 22, 2016
... while sometimes bits of comedy are distractingly nonsensical, the film preserves scenes of illustrated beauty, smart contemplation and clever humor.Epoch TimesMay 18, 2016
Even in today's world of banal CGI wonders, it would be a tall order to render the scope and detail of the Franklins' ominous steampunk world in a live-action tent-pole.LarsenOnFilmMay 08, 2016
Soot and steam seep into every frame, so that you can almost sense the picture wheezing.
