An extraordinary tribute to Jean-Jacques Sempé and René Goscinny, based on their best-selling books. Official Selection at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival, and Cristal for the Best Animated Movie at the 2022 Annecy Film Festival.
Somewhere between Montmartre and Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Jean-Jacques Sempé and René Goscinny lean over a large white sheet of paper and bring to life a mischievous and endearing boy, Little Nicholas. From schoolyard games and fights to summer camp prank and camaraderie, Nicholas lives a merry and enriching childhood. As the adventures of Nicholas and his friends unfold, the boy makes his way into his creators’ workshop and light-heartedly questions them. Sempé and Goscinny will recount the story of their friendship, career, and reveal a childhood filled with hopes and dreams.
Special Screening at the Cannes Film Festival and winner of the Annecy Festival Cristal Award for Best Animated Feature Film.
