The Carte Noire IFI French Film Festival links up with the IFI Family programme this month for a French animation based on the best-selling children’s book of the same name.
It tells the story of six-year-old Jean who is going to big school for the first time and has to get used to the very strict teacher. At home his little brother Paul and he squabble a lot while the babysitter Yvette minds them till their father comes home after long days at the factory. Jean misses his mother badly so when he gets postcards from her, his friend Michèle from next door reads them aloud. He imagines his mother visiting all kinds of exciting places like Brazil, Switzerland and a Buffalo Bill Wild West show in the U.S.A.
This beautifully animated, heartfelt story is about family, love and a little bit of growing up.
Special Mention at Annecy International Animation Film Festival.
Tickets: €4.80 per person, €14.40 family ticket (2 adults + 2 children/1 adult + 3 children)
