Ciné-récré: "L’enfant au grelot" et "Le père Frimas"

Friday 8 February 2019 14:00-15:00

Ciné-récré is our cinéma programme for younger children and their families. We will be screening a family-friendly film one Friday a month at 2:00pm (exact dates forthcoming). These events are free, but for members only. We invite you to book early and if you are not yet a member of the Institut français d’Ecosse, we invite you to join.

For our February ciné-récré, we will be screening "L’enfant au grelot" (Jacques-Rémy Girerd, 1998) et "Le père Frimas" (Iouri Tcherenkov, 2012)


Film 1: L’Enfant au grelot (dir. Jacques-Rémy Girerd | 1998 | 26 min)
One cold winter day, the postman Grand-Jacques sees a wicker basket slowly fall from the sky, and inside the basket is a baby! The baby Charlie goes everywhere with his rattle and it holds a number of secrets.

Film 2: Le Père Frimas (dir. Iouri Tcherenkov | 2012 | 26 min)
At the top of a very high mountain lives Father Frismas, a delicious character endowed with bewitching powers. For times immemorial, Father Frismas has always made sure that every corner of the valley receives the perfect amount of snow in winter. But this year, it seems pretty hard to find the right balance. Indeed, since gentle Paul married Edwige - a city-dweller who can’t stand the cold - then got lost in the forest and woke up awful Sylvain, his daughter Lucie hasn’t had a moment of peace to knit socks.
