If you're worried that foreign-language films made by the kind of directors admired by university professors must be slow, stiff and boring, Zazie Dans Le Metro will change your mind. The plot is this: a really badly-behaved 12-year-old girl goes wild in Paris for a weekend. It's full of colour, inventive insults, food getting thrown around, and characters behaving like they are in cartoons. It's dizzying fun from start to finish. In French, with English subtitles. PLEASE BE AWARE: After ordering Zazie Dans Le Metro the disc you will receive may be marked as being a 15 certificate - however, this relates to the extra features on the DVD and not the film itself, which is certified with the BBFC as a 12. Into Film has consulted the BBFC, and their guidance is that as long as a club leader screens only the film (and not additional features or audio commentaries etc), Zazie Dans Le Metro can be treated as a 12 certificate in a school setting.
An anthem for troubled loners everywhere and an emblem of French cinematic cool, this is the deeply moving tale of a cheeky yet vulnerable schoolboy.
