FRA/CHE | 2016 | dir. Claude Barras, with Gaspard Schlatter, Sixtine Murat, Paulin Jaccoud | 6+

Critically acclaimed and adapted for the screen by Céline Sciamma (Girlhood, Tomboy), Claude Barras’s first animated feature is a funny, engaging film with an unexpected depth and sense of beauty for kids and adults alike. After his mother’s disappearance, Courgette moves into a foster home with orphans of his age. At first struggling to find his place in this strange, at times, hostile environment, Courgette eventually learns to trust and might find true love.
