MUBI's take

Lyrically written by Céline Sciamma, My Life as a Courgette is a one-of-a-kind movie, offering irrefutable wisdom to all ages and walks of life. Realized in gorgeously tactile stop-motion animation, its young characters show remarkable resilience and humor in the face of what life throws at them.
