Stop motion stuff. Courgette is a gloomy little orphan (who accidentally killed his alcoholic mother). He lives in an orphanage now, together with other gloomy orphans. They all turn out to be very good kids, even the bad kid. Courgette falls for a newly arrived orphan girl. All kids go for a winter break in the mountains. Their caretakers are good people, a couple, expecting a child. Problems appear when an evil aunt comes around. They get solved.
What’s special about it then? It has a great tone, a tender, humanistic expression. It’s delicate. Simple. Direct. The hardest things, right?
