Movie Info

After his mother's sudden death, Zucchini is befriended by a police officer, Raymond, who accompanies him to his new foster home, filled with other orphans his age. At first he struggles to find his place in this at times strange and hostile environment. But with Raymond's help and his newfound friends, Zucchini eventually learns to trust and love, as he searches for a new family of his own. Brought to life through striking character designs and expressive stop-motion animation, the story soars with laughter, sorrow, and joy, and stands as a testament to the resilience of the human heart. Beginning with its debut at Cannes, the film has stirred up an overwhelming response on the festival circuit, taking home top jury and audience prizes at Annecy, Melbourne and Angoulême, as it prepares to melt hearts in North America with its premiere at Toronto.

On one hand, the cartoon is never afraid to be cute, but more importantly, it's committed to being real.

A reminder that being gifted such a tender and thoughtful observation of childhood is all too rare unless Sciamma is involved.

A sad story about abandonment and loss of innocence where love saves everything, with animation full of different textures that enrich and soften the Fontaines orphanage's characters. [Full review in Spanish]

Much of the directness in the film's attitude to difficult issues is surely down to Sciamma, whose own projects Girlhood and Water Lilies didn't shy away from the conflicts of growing up.
