Artistic film about famous author & aviator
31 December 2018 | by moonbus69See all my reviews

I saw this on VHS back in the 90's several times. A very art house type of film, with very imaginative and fantasy-type action scenes cleverly placed in between the more mundane parts... Far from a straight-ahead biopic kind of film, but for anyone that has read 'The Little Prince' or Saint-Exupery's other books about his flying adventures, this is quite a delightful film!
