Azur et Asmar (Azur and Asmar)

















Nanny, sing us the sweet words.

A small boy

Becomes big boy

A small boy

Becomes a big boy

Crosses the valleys

Puts out fires

Crosses the valleys

Puts out fires

And he saves

The Djinn Fairy

Together they live in happiness


And a handsome prince will come

bearing the three magic keys.

He will save the Djinn Fairy.

And he will find love.

Mama, what are djinns?

They're little people

who look after the world around us.

Sometimes they are kind.

Sometimes they are wicked.

So it's necessary for the Djinn Fairy

to keep control of them.

Are there djinns here as well, nanny?

Yes, but they're known as elves.

Perhaps some kind ones will come

to soothe your sleep tonight.

Sleep well, my loves.

Good night, nanny.

Good night,


A little boy

This child will grow

Becomes a big boy

Handsome and strong

Crosses the valleys

Puts out fires

He will travel far across the sea

One day he'll save

The Djinn Princess

And he saves

The Djinn Fairy

And both shall live in happiness

And both shall live in happiness


How is my son?

He's growing big, growing strong.

And he has the eyes of an angel.

- Be certain he wants for nothing.

- Yes, master.

Far away, across the sea,

in the land of the Djinn Fairy,

the sun always shines.

The scent of roses and jasmine

fills the air.

The houses are white and blue,

as in a dream.

- Asmar's got a bigger slice than me.

- That's not true. It's smaller.

That's not true. He's eaten it all.

Stop arguing, or I won't finish the story.

- No!

- No!

- So, what do you say?

- Thank you, nanny.

Thank you, mum.

Now, the Djinn Fairy

is held captive

in a black mountain far away.

Inside it, there is a great Hall of Light

decorated with precious stones.

And within a crystal cage,

the Djinn Fairy is held imprisoned,

more beautiful than any diamond.

One day, a handsome prince will come.

He will find the three magic keys.

He will defeat the Scarlet Lion

with the blue claws.

He will defeat the bird Saimourh

with its rainbow wings.

He will find the secret passageway

in the Black Cliff.

Azur is no longer a baby.

It's not proper for him

to be living with you.

As from tonight,

he will sleep in his own room, upstairs.

- You're just not good-looking at all.

- Yes, I'm the handsome one.

Your clothes maybe, but not you.

But I've got lovely blue eyes.

- They're ugly.

- No. I look like an angel.

You, an angel?

My country's better than this place.

How do you know it is?

You've never even been there.

- I know because my mum said so.

- That's not true. She never did.

- She did too.

- No, she didn't.

- Did.

- Didn't.

- Did.

- Didn't.

- Did.

- Didn't.

The rain stopped.

And anyway, this is your country.

You were born here.

This is not my country.

- Yes, it is yours.

- It isn't.

- It is.

- It isn't.

Stop that.

Which one's Azur?


The time's come for you to learn dancing,

fencing, riding and Latin.

You'll do me credit in all of them.

God willing.

What's that?

I said, God willing.

One, two, three, four.

One, two, three, four.

Much more nobility in your bearing.

One, two, three, four.

I asked for a certain nobility in bearing,

not a tight neck.

Try and bring a little grace

to what you are doing.

One, two, three, four.

And one, two, three, four.

What I asked for is grace.

What I get is porridge.

One, two, three, four.

Good. We should call a hold there

for today, I think.

Bow nicely.

No, no, take your time.
