After the sudden death of his alcoholic mother, Courgette will be forced to enter in an orphanage with other children of his age who have lived equally tragic stories with their parents. In this ambient marked by pain and abandonment, Courgette will learn to rebuild the bonds of affection and trust. The first feature film by Claude Barras, nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Film, explores the social and moral implications of orphanhood while avoiding the tackiness and sensationalism, My Life as a Zucchini stands out for telling through stop motion animation such delicate issue without forced condescendence towards the children’s audience.
