My Life as a Courgette

Part of the Filmhouse Junior Season


A genuinely touching stop-motion animated feature with dark themes that will call to mind the likes of Coraline or the heyday of Tim Burton, My Life as a Courgette is at times funny and heartbreaking in the same frame. Nine year old Icare, nicknamed 'Courgette' by his late mother, is taken to a foster care centre by a kindly policeman and struggles to fit in.

With the help of brash tough kid Simon and fellow new arrival Camille, however, he soon learns that all of them have been through a lot in their young lives.

Screening from English language version.
