Our family really enjoyed this moving but I would suggest for parents to watch it beforehand to screen it. There are topics that will be hard for some children to be able to grasp. However, it was very well done and I found it to be a great film for the family to watch together. Life is not one happy vision for everyone. This movie touches on some upsetting aspects of life but gives a life to hope and our agency to control our futures.

Not for younger kids. Movie explains sex, though in a childish manner. Be prepared for "The Talk" afterwards.
Overall a great movie, though somewhat sad.

Quirky the way many foreign films are. One of the few animated films i actually liked

Great movie, but only for more mature kids. It can be upsetting for the younger ones.

Too dark, except for older teenagers. It is mildly funny in a few places, but it is not an entertaining animation for kids or adults. Kids in or from foster homes might appreciate seeing something that deals with their experience, so worthy from that pov.

Sweet and real and lovely. It shows kids dealing with issues that even adult media shys away from. Yay for a good and well-meaning orphanage too. Yay for a three-dimensional "bully" and yay for showing happy and sad moments. A moving and sweet claymation film that felt more REAL than many live-action films.
I think it is okay for older children to view, especially if they have had to deal with hard issues in their lives. Actually, I think this film would really help children that have had to deal with grief and dysfunctional parents and other hard issues.
I watched the English-subtitled French version and the special features showed how they had non-actor children really playing out the scenes while recording--which explains a lot of the realism and sincerity felt throughout the film. Also, you can tell the creators really loved and cared for the film, story, and characters.

this is NOT a Kid's movie IMO. I think it addresses issues that some kids will find overwhelming.

Enjoyable animated movie from France, more for adults than children.
