ANIMATION Céline Sciamma wrote the screenplay for this magical stop-motion film, which gained an Oscar nomination and numerous prizes. After the sudden death of his mother, 9-year old Icare, known as Zucchini, is taken into care. Life there isn’t easy, because cheeky Simon, worried Béatrice, shy Alice, dishevelled Jujube and dreamy Ahmed have also seen a lot of life. But they pull themselves together and give each other support. One day, they are joined by Camille and Zucchini falls in love (a bit) for the first time. When Camille‘s mean aunt wants the girl to move in with her, Zucchini and his friends do everything they can to prevent it.
