Film title

My Life as a Courgette


Synopsis

A charming French animation about a 9-year-old boy called Courgette who is sent to live in a children's home following the death of his mother. Learning to fit in with the other children – each of whom carry scars of their own difficult pasts – the film is a gentle exploration of the thoughts and feelings a young person might have when going through a difficult period. Full of humour, the challenging issues and behaviours of each child is dealt with sensitively and from the perspective of Courgette as he gets to know them. The bright, colourful animation and affecting story make this a perceptive and uplifting film about friendship and child welfare.

Mild sex references, references to traumatic childhood experiences. Into Film recommend this film is enjoyable for 7+ ages however, more sensitive viewers may find some of the references difficult to understand. In these cases we suggest the film is best for ages 11+.
