MY LIFE AS A ZUCCHINI

 

Director: Claude Barras

Germany

66 Min.

After the sudden death of his mother, 9-year-old Icare, whose nickname is Zucchini, is sent to a children's home. Under the care of the home's kind director and her staff, he is raised there with other children who, like him, have had to deal with difficult experiences in their lives. But the children learn to get along with one another, and Zucchini even "falls in love" with the brave Camille. And despite the intrigues contrived by Camille's aunt, a hopeful future lays ahead for everyone.
