Animation maestro Michel Ocelot (Kirikou and the Men and Women, AF FFF2014; Tales of the Night, AFFFF2012) opened the 2018 Annecy International Animation Film Festival – selling out in just five minutes –with this exquisite journey back to Belle Epoque Paris. Our heroine is a precocious six-year-old girl, Dilili, astowaway from the Pacific island of New Caledonia.

As a series of kidnappings casts 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.

CINEMA PARADISO

On the 60th anniversary in 2019 of Goscinny and Uderzo’s much-adored comic book series – which has been translated into more than 100 languages – this latest big-screen adventure sees Astérix (voiced by Christian Clavier, The Price to Pay, AF FFF2008), Obélix (voiced by Guillaume Briat) and a cast of old favourites go on the hunt for a talented druid to entrust a secret recipe.

While collecting ingredients for the secret magic potion that has helped our beloved Gaulish village hold out against Julius Cesar and his invading army so valiantly, the venerable druid Getafix suffers a terrible accident. As he recovers from his injuries, he realises a succession plan must be put in place to pass on his magic potion and keep the village safe. The ensuing adventure comes loaded with lashings of wild boar and an almost endless supply of Romans for Obélix to battle.

Thanks to the expert eye of Louis Clichy and Alexandre Astier (co-directors of Astérix – the mansions of the Gods), fans of this lovable Gallic icon are sure to be thrilled with the faithful continuation of characters and worlds originally created by Goscinny and Uderzo, although this time depicted in magnificent 3D animation. A delight for the young and young-at-heart in equal measures – by toutatis!

IN YOUR HANDS
(AU BOUT DES DOIGTS)

Country: France
Voiced by: Jules Benchetrit, Lamber Wilson, Kristin Scott Thomas, André Marcon
Duration: 105 min
Date of Release: 26/12/2018
Genre: Drama

Filmmaker Ludovic Bernard (Mission Pays Basque) has seen his star-power rise meteorically since working as an assistant director for Luc Besson on Lucy (2014). In Your Hands demonstrates his elegance and sensitivity behind the lens with an emotionally stirring tale of a deprived young man and his rare gift for music.

Mathieu (Jules Benchetrit) lives with his mother and siblings in a housing project where peer group pressures have led him into petty theft. When the director of a prestigious music conservatory, Pierre (Lambert Wilson, opening night film of AF FFF2017, The Odyssey; and Raising Colours in this year’s Festival), hears Mathieu playing piano at a railway station (#pianoengare), he is blown away. Pierre decides to use his influence to secure private lessons for Mathieu at the conservatory with the imposing Countess (Kristin Scott Thomas), although with a secret agenda: to enter Mathieu in an international competition.

“You play because you can’t not play,” says Pierre of his prodigy but social pressures, and the both exciting and daunting prospect of performing piano professionally, causes Mathieu to question himself. Will he play at the international competition or not? Not even Mathieu knows the answer.

With a sweeping and swirling camera that seems to get ‘inside’ the music, Bernard wrangles many themes in In Your Hands, including that of social privation, although distinguished along class lines, not race or creed. Mathieu’s tackling of Rachmaninoff echoes the 1996 film Shine, in which Geoffrey Rush as the adult David Helfgott also conquers this ‘Everest’ of classical piano.
