Critic Reviews of "My Life as a Zucchini (Ma vie de courgette)"Chicago Sun-TimesMarch 09, 2017
Seeing the world through a child's eyes can be pretty eye-opening. Watching My Life as a Zucchini, the altogether marvelous and Oscar-nominated stop-action animated film by director Claude Barras, that world is one you will not soon forget.Chicago ReaderMarch 09, 2017
The movie can be funny and heartbreaking at once-Zucchini's only keepsake of his mother is an empty beer can-though in the end what registers most is the children's resilience when "there's nobody left to love us."Seattle TimesMarch 08, 2017
Along with the kids' sorrow, Barras works uplift and lightness into the story, and there are moments of great joy.Christian Science MonitorMarch 03, 2017
The film is a real rarity, made even more so by the fact that what has moved us so profoundly are a bunch of pop-eyed plasticine figures.San Diego ReaderMarch 03, 2017
The sins of the fathers (and mothers) are visited upon the children in Claude Barras's brief, stop-motion tale of little ones finding love among the ruins.Washington PostMarch 02, 2017
It may not sound like it, but calling this barely 70-minute Swiss stop-motion film "heavy" - as in substantial and almost swollen with feeling - is a true compliment.Irish TimesJune 13, 2017
The film is a beautifully balanced visual marvel.El FinancieroJune 08, 2017
A beautiful surprise with moments of sweetness, where the orphans learn to comfrot each other. [Full review in Spanish]Film Ireland MagazineJune 08, 2017
Colourful, emotive and nuanced, My Life As a Courgette is a Swiss/French stop-motion film that doesn't shy away from the sobering realities of many children in care homes.Sunday Independent (Ireland)June 05, 2017
Hankies at the ready.Sight and SoundJune 05, 2017
The upfront acknowledgement in My Life as a Courgette that many childhoods play out with nary a hint of magic, sparkle or sugar to help the medicine go down feels unorthodox and bracing.Sunday Times (UK)June 05, 2017
It is, admittedly, cute and tender, a smooth and sensitive approach to the lives of abandoned children who are thinking and dealing with issues they should simply never have to contemplate.
