A magnificent film, featuring an intrepid, lovable heroine in enchanting settings (a sublime forest).

- Le Parisien

In 2012, one of the biggest hits of the AF FFF was the enchanting A Cat in Paris, a hand-painted animated production by artists Alain Gagnol and Jean-Loup Felicioli. The film went on to achieve major international success and received an Academy Award nomination for Best Animated Feature, bucking the trend towards computer-generated productions.

Now 12 years later, the pair have re-emerged with Nina and the Secret of the Hedgehog, an exquisite new adventure about a young girl with a wild curiosity and love for her family, featuring the voice talents of beloved French cinema icons Audrey Tautou and Guillaume Canet (reunited for the first time after 16 years since Hunting & Gathering).

Ten-year-old Nina has always filled her imagination with her dad’s highly improvised bedtime stories about hedgehogs. But when he loses his job, Nina begins to have concerns about the future. So, after hearing rumours of a treasure stashed away by the old factory’s boss, Nina and loyal best friend Mehdi decide to organise a risky search, in the hope of sharing the loot between her father and his fellow co-workers. Thus begins an incredible adventure full of humour and colour, one that proves Gagnol and Felicioli’s talents as artists and storytellers of ingenuity and empathy are as evident as ever.
