The King and the Mockingbird (eng sub) U

Part of Films for the Family. France, 1980, Paul Grimault, 83m.

This egg took a while to hatch: imagined as France’s first animated feature at the end of the 1940s by Grimault and poetic realist writer Jacques Prévert, The King and the Mockingbird finally came into the world in 1980. Based on Hans Christian Andersen’s The Shepherdess and the Chimney Sweep, the tale of a cross-eyed king enamored of a painting of a shepherdess who only has eyes for a neighboring painting, the finished product is a brimming banquet of inventive animation admired and adored by the great Hayao Miyazaki, among many others.

In French with English subtitles.

Recommended age: 6+
