Purbeck Film Festival: My Life As A Courgette

Over 65 films showcasing the very best of cinema


My Life As A Courgette (2016) / Rating PG

Claude Barras’s marvellous non-stop animation juggles the troubles, dreams and fortitude of a boy in a children’s home with deft realism. Courgette is the family nickname of Icare: after accidentally precipitating the demise of his alcoholic mother, Courgette is placed in a children’s home with other sons and daughters of the deceased, absent or incapable. “We’re all the same,” says the home’s resident bully, Simon. “There’s nobody left to love us.” But after some teething problems, Icare’s experience proves Simon wrong: with the help of confident, sparky new girl Camille, the group forge their very own loving bonds, and to some is held out the hope of a happy ending.

In French with subtitles.

Director: Claude Barras

Featuring the voices of: Gaspard Schlatter, Sixtine Murat, Paulin Jaccoud
