    I like this movie a lot, and NOT just cause my darlings Penn and Teller were involved with it! The art is really interesting looking and does not rip off any other fantasy (unlike a lot of disney/LOTR/yellow submarine etc. wannabes.) I also like the fact the the mutants were the bravest characters in the movie, they help the hero w/ no questions asked despite the fact that his people have discriminated against them.

i grew up watching this movie.  i searched for it for years to own, or even to rent; but  live in a small town and any movie without jesus in the title is hard to find.  now i'm looking for novels by the man who wrote the novel, isaac asimov.

Isaac Asimov did not write Les Hommes-machines contre Gandahar (The Men-Machines Against Gandahar, the 1969 novel on which the film was based). That was by Jean-Pierre Andrevon. All Asimov did was adapt the translation into the English script – which isn't a very creative role; they only hired him so that they could put his name on the poster.

Gandahar, the original, French-language film, has been released on DVD with English subtitles in the UK (cat.# EKA40260; it's restored and anamorphic widescreen and so on). It's region-free (so doesn't require a multi-region player) but it is PAL-format, so won't work on all DVD players and TVs in America and Japan. See here for more info: http://www.eurekavideo.co.uk/moc/catalogue/gandahar

Also, the original soundtrack has been available on CD for some years now, on Gabriel Yared's Film Music Vol. 5 (cat.# CFY005). One can hear a few tracks from it here: http://www.myspace.com/gandaharlesanneeslumiere

And one more thing – here are a couple of links on Caza, the bande dessiner who designed the look of the film: http://www.lambiek.net/artists/c/caza.htm & http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caza
He also designed another animated film, much more recently, called Les Enfants de la pluie (Children of the Rain).

Merci.

Seriously, anyone with even a passing interest in animation and 60-70s era science fiction should buy themselves a VHS of this. I rented it repeatedly as a child and although the animation will seem stiff by today's standards, its story is still engaging.

One scene was cut out of the american version and it was a sexually suggestive scene involving Sylvain and Airelle in a pedal of a plant. Its not much missing so its not a big deal like part of the plot or action.

Great Movie! I first saw this movie in the early 90's. I found a vhs copy for sale in a video store and fell in love.
I picked it up because it was made by the same guy who made Fantastic Planet. Back then it was hard to find
Full length Sci-Fi animated films and Anime had'nt really been made available to general public. People might tend to forget this and judge this movie to harshly. This movie has a great plot and brilliant animation. A must see!
If you ever get the chance, the original French version has scenes that were cut from the American release.
I guess they thought them to graphic for the kiddies.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
