According to Vietnamnet, the film is written and directed by Michel Ocelot, with preproduction by Studio O and animation production by Mac Guff.

The 95-minute film centers around the adventures in Paris of a Kanak girl named Dilili from New Caledonia, a French territory in the South Pacific.

With her new friend Orel, a delivery boy who knows a lot about famous people such as Marie Curie, Marcel Proust, Louis Pasteur and Toulouse-Lautrec, Dilili investigates the mysterious kidnappings of young girls, which involve a secret society called The Master-Men.

In the course of their investigation, they encounter a series of extraordinary characters, each of whom provides them with clues that will help them in their quest to find the missing girls.

The narrative takes place in the Belle Époque, roughly from 1900 to 1909, a period when all fields of science, technology and arts have made great progress in France, cited France.

Dilili in Paris will take the audience from one surprise to another. This is a beautiful movie with attractive characters that audiences should not miss.

According to Rotten Tomatoes, the film is feminist and anti-racist to the bone, and considered startling and entertaining. The site said Dilili in Paris reaches its intended demographic with grace and a liberal amount of playfulness, truly embodying the gleeful period of French history.

Although there is an unsettling theme in the tale that could prove challenging for very young viewers, Ocelot’s film employs his lovingly crafted trademark style. It features the universal aspiration of good triumphing over evil and presents likeable lead characters.

Ocelot noted that the starting point for the production was his desire to create a work on the topic of male suppression and abuse of women and girls.

Dilili in Paris stars the voices of Prunelle Charles-Ambron, Enzo Ratsito and Natalie Dessay. The film won the César Award for Best Animated Feature at the 44th César Awards in 2019.

Film screenings in both HCMC and Hue will start at 3 p.m. Tickets are priced at VND50,000 (US$ 2.14), with a concession for students at VND40,000 (US$ 1.71) in HCMC and VND10,000 (US$ 0.43) in Hue, reported by VOV.
