My Life As a Courgette (2016)

Claude Barras directs Gaspard Schlatter, Sixtine Murat and Paulin Jaccound in this French stop motion animation about a boy who goes into care.

Well made, well reviewed and well intentioned – but aside from critics and awards panels who is it for? Too stark for kids, too twee for adults and too naive for animation fans.
