Six-year-old Cathy is bored spending weekends at her parents’ country house so when she gets some magic seeds to plant, she wants to stay and watch them grow. Hiding as her parents leave, she then realises that they are worried about her. But afraid she’ll be punished, she heads deeper into the forest where she forages for food and avoids wild animals An amazing performance, warmth and humour in this gem of a film. In French with English subtitles read aloud by an experienced reader. AGE 7+

I liked the film, it was sad, scary and funny. It’s about a girl who runs away, she is funny and brave. I don’t usually watch this kind of film, it’s hard to read subtitles (my dad read them out for me). It’s for age 7, 8, 9, 10+ and I’d recommend it to my friends.
