Storyline

Two clans of snakes cohabit in the desert. Beautiful green serpents that live under the shelter of an oasis, protected and venerated by men and venomous snakes that survive in the sand, dust and heat, hunted and killed by the Tuaregs. Here is the story of Ajar, a young venomous serpent, laughed at by his peers because he still has not done his first molt and that of Eva, rebellious princess of the oasis who wants to escape an arranged marriage. These two will meet and fall in love. Alas, Eva will be kidnapped by the Tuaregs and Ajar, accompanied by his best friend, Pitt the Scorpion, will have to cross the ruthless Sahara to save Eva from the terrible fate awaiting her.

Proved better than ratings suggest!
17 May 2017 | by vstergiosSee all my reviews

Found this animation by accident and decided to do a little background check on IMDb. Ratings were pretty low but as with most animated films that come to my attention I decided to give it a try and find out by my self.

What I discovered was a classic lower class boy loves and rescues high class girl story, injected with some anti-racist and anti-drug messages, even a subtle but apparent criticism on current political events. Overall I'd go for entertaining with some interesting pointers and blame the low ratings mostly on lack of proper advertisement (practically none... ).

On a final note, those of you inclined to poke the truth out of a pile of words, do take a closer look at those really negative comments and the country they're originating from. Sad to see people prefer walls over peaceful coexistence...
