Le Petit Nicolas (PG)


Laurent Tirard
(2009, Belgium / France, 91 mins)

This dark, slightly absurdist comedy from France topped the French box office in 2009, becoming a local phenomenon. It is narrated by Nicolas (Maxime Godart), an eight-year-old boy supremely happy with his loving, doting parents and a colorful group of friends. It seems that life couldn’t possibly improve – until Nicolas eavesdrops on his folks and surmises that his mother is pregnant. Horrified, he envisions a scenario where a new baby brother arrives and crowds him out of the house, leaving his parents with no time to care for him. Nicolas and his friends then cook up a series of wild schemes to dispose of the baby. (Nathan Southern)
