Film description:

This movie was nominated for the Academy Award for the Best Animated Feature Film of the Year in 2017 and won two Cesar awards for Best Adapted Screenplay (Meilleure adaptation) and Best Animated Film.
Courgette (Zucchini) is an intriguing nickname for a 9-year-old boy. Although his unique story is surprisingly universal. After his mother’s disappearance, 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 and might find true love.
