Feature - AFFFF selection 1

Dilili in Paris by Michel Ocelots


A film for the whole family

Even though it's a movie for kids, it also is very entertaining adults as it is a very intelligent story that raises with simplicity important questions about innocence, women in society and extremism.


A cultural trip

Dilili in Paris offers a large cultural panorama of France in the beginning of the 20th century, when Paris was considered the capital of the world. Dilili, a little girl investing some strange disappearances, meets Picasso, Marie Curie, Gustave Eiffel among many other great figures of France in the 1900's… Her adventures take place in emblematic places of Paris such as Montmartre, the Moulin Rouge, the Eiffel Tower and so much more. 

Directed by Michel Ocelot, he manages to convey his fascination for the strong will of kids, making them capable of achieve great things.

It has the innocence of childhood, and the beauty of maturity. To me it is one of the best films of 2018.
