German children’s film – DER MONDMANN – issued on dvd

Animated film based on a story and illustrations by Tomi Ungerer. When the man on the moon (voice of Katharina Thalbach) hitches a ride on a passing comet in order to reach Earth, he has no idea what’s in store for him when he gets there. Believing his appearance is the precursor of an alien attack, the President (Ulrich Tukur) aims to capture him before he can cause any harm, but on the contrary, the Moon Man has come in peace and is preoccupied with his discoveries on the alien planet.

However, while on his adventure, Moon Man learns that by leaving his post, the children of Earth are unable to sleep, and as he avoids capture he is tasked with finding a way back home.
