Details

Jean-François Laguionie’s hand-painted animated feature is a thing of great beauty and lyrical charm that evokes comparisons with impressionist paintings and some of Studio Ghibli’s finest. Louise (voiced by Dominique Frot) is a little old woman who spends every summer in the coastal resort of Biligen-sur-Mer. One summer, she misses the last train home and becomes a latter-day Robinson Crusoe, building a cabin on the beach, surviving raging storms, finding companionship in a dog called Pepper and sustaining herself with warming memories and bittersweet visions of the past.

With her humour, quiet determination and lack of fear of the future, Louise is a delight – a Robinson Crusoe in pearls and a panama hat.
