Anima 2021 Stop Motion
My Life as a Zucchini / Ma Vie de Courgette ⁄ colour ⁄ 66' ⁄ SUBS: EN
Claude Barras, Zwitserland - Suisse / Frankrijk - France, 2016
"A wonderfully affecting French-Swiss stop-motion masterpiece based on Gilles Paris’s book Autobiographie d’une courgette. Directed by feature first-timer Claude Barras from a screenplay by Girlhood writer-director Céline Sciamma, this tale of resilient children surviving abuse and abandonment may sound tough and unpalatable. Yet despite the spectre of parental alcoholism, drug addiction and worse, this beautifully tender and empathetic film addresses kids and adults alike in clear and compassionate tones that span – and perhaps heal – generations." The Guardian
