French Film Festival: LE HERISSON (THE HEDGEHOG) (Fullerton College)


A film by Mona Achache, with Josiane Balasko.

Paloma is a serious and highly articulate but deeply
bored 11-year-old who has decided to kill herself on her
12th birthday. Fascinated by art and philosophy, she
questions and documents her life and immediate circle,
drawing trenchant and often hilarious observations on
the world around her. But as her appointment with
death approaches, Paloma finally meets some kindred
spirits in her building's grumpy janitor and an enigmatic,
elegant neighbor, both of whom inspire Paloma to
question her rather pessimistic outlook on life.


After the movie we will get together for a drink in Downtown Fullerton.

    I will try to go early and reserve 6 seats for us, if I can, in the middle of the theater. Let's meet after the film and have a drink. Perhaps the Pint House downtown Fullerton (136 W Wilshire Ave)?

    This is one of the best films I've seen in the past few years. Beautiful story and well articulated on screen.
    THE HEDGEHOG was the winner of the Seattle International Film Festival Space Needle Award for Best Picture as well as the FilmFest DC and Col-Coa Film Festival Audience Winner. Mona Achache’s feature film debut, THE HEDGEHOG also garnered a Best of Fest mention at this year’s Palm Springs International Film Festival.
