Friday 13 October
7pm [Animated movie] The Big Bad Fox and other tales
by Benjamin Renner and Patrick Imbert (2017) – 89mn / French OV with English subtitles
Whoever thinks that the countryside is calm and peaceful is mistaken. In it we find especially agitated animals, a fox that thinks it’s a chicken, a rabbit that acts like a stork, and a duck who wants to replace Father Christmas. If you want to take a vacation, keep driving past this place.
