Synopsis by Gönül Dönmez-Colin
Between a documentary about animals and pure Indiana Jones, Hanuman is a children's film that lavishly narrates the tale of Hanuman, the legendary monkey king of India whose father is the wind and the mother a monkey. Hanuman is the most lovable baby monkey one can imagine. He meets Tom who comes to visit the temple in the Valley of Monkeys and tries to protect it from the robbers. A warm relationship develops between the two. The strongest points of this film are the magical landscape of India reminiscent of Rudyard Kipling books and the acting, particularly by Robert Cavanah who stays day and night with little Hanou. Recommend to children of all ages.
