CINEMA
For the kids, we have the sweet and colourful French animated film U (6+).
Meet Mona, a princess who lives a lonely existence in a dilapidated castle by the sea. She is cruelly mistreated by a pair of rats until a unicorn named U appears to protect her. In time Mona grows to be a very beautiful girl. One day a troupe of travelling and noisy musicians, the Wéwés, settle in the nearby forest, and among them, the charmer Kulka.
