My Life as a Zucchini

1 year, 8 months ago at Feb 28 19:39

An animated story about a group of orphans that looks like moving Play-Doh and is a co-production between France and Switzerland. Does this sound like something you’d be interested in watching? Well, it should be. My Life as a Zucchini is a bittersweet tale of dealing with trauma with quiet resolve and imagery to convey depths of sorrow or joy.   We meet Icare, dubbed Courgette (French for zu... read more

Courgette is an intriguing nickname for a 9-year-old boy. Although his unique story is surprisingly universal. After his mother's sudden death, Courgette is befriended by a police officer Raymond, who accompanies him to his new foster home filled with other orphans his age. At first he struggles to find his place in this strange, at times, hostile environment. Yet with Raymond's help and his new-found friends, Courgette eventually learns to trust, finds true love and at last a new family of his own.

Movies the giraffe watched in 2018: July (26 movies items)

"First viewing - July 8th So first off I just want to say I find it somewhat irritating that the DVD I picked up touts the names of the English voice cast on its cover for the English translation. The Disney releases of the Studio Ghibli films do this as well, making it seem like people should just watch it in English instead of the original language. Fortunately I knew this was originally shot in French, so I just adjusted the settings so I could experience it the right way. But still, it denie"

"26.3. (Yle Areena) Jälleen yksi hyvää tarkoittava ja näppärältä näyttävä animaatio, jonka muutamat hiuksianostattavan vaivaannuttavat hetket (discoilta, halloween-bileet...) laskevat kykyä nauttia kokonaisuudesta."

"There's not too many worse feelings than when you start a film and know exactly beat-for-beat what's going to happen in it within the first 15 minutes. This charmingly animated story about a kid who ends up in a home for abandoned children is exactly that. As a result, all those story beats feel very mild, fluffy. There's a clear attempt at creating a textured cavalcade of characters, but it doesn't pay out as an intriguing movie. My Life as a Zucchini is actually at it's best whenever no one is"

"27/5/17 One of the absolute delights of 2017. A French animated tale of a young boy who is forced to live in a home and is confronted with issues that turn him from a quiet, shy boy into a confident young man. It deals with difficult subject matters full on and yet you never feel uncomfortable or it never comes across as misguided. A wonderful, touching and utterly charming piece of cinema."
