FRENCH WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES

Animation maestro Michel Ocelot (Kirikou and the Men and Women, AF FFF2014; Tales of the Night, AF FFF2012) opened the 2018 Annecy International Animation Film Festival – selling out in just five minutes – with this exquisite journey back to Belle Époque Paris. Our heroine is a precocious six-year-old girl, Dilili, a stowaway from the Pacific island of New Caledonia.

As a series of kidnappings cast a dark shadow across Paris, Dilili takes it upon herself to get to the bottom of the disappearances. The pint-sized detective follows a trail of clues, with local delivery boy, Orel, acting as the Watson to her Holmes. Orel knows every major figure from the artistic heyday of the Belle Époque – Marie Curie, Picasso, Renoir, Louis Pasteur, Gustave Eiffel and Colette, just to name a few. They all play a part in Dilili’s investigation, as do the many glorious landmarks of Paris that are still present today.

Placing his colourful 2D animated characters over beautiful photo-realistic backdrops, Ocelot provides us with a meaningful lesson in French cultural history, one that comes wrapped in an enchanting tale of brave young heroes, extraordinary places and magical encounters in which good eventually triumphs over evil.
