Known and loved by generations of children, Pinchon's classic Bécassine is now a feature-length movie. A cross between Mary Poppins and Mr Bean, Bécassine is the nanny every child dreams of having ! Her mismatched green dress, white apron and red-and-white striped socks might look a little strange, but the gawky Bécassine is a truly lovable character. Her adventures begin when Bécassine arrives in Paris to take care of Charlotte, the daughter of one of her former charges. Bécassine and Charlotte get caught up in a fanatic and comical adventure filled with song and dance. They race from Paris to Marseilles to Ibiza and Lapland trying to unravel the mystery of what happened to Charlotte's father, Edmond. What is he running from ? What secret is he trying to protect ? Will Charlotte's family escape the evil clutches of Gaspard, a so-called family friend ?Written by
As some posters tell the story is cliché, the characters are stereotypes, the story is predictable etc.
But, it's a really funny kid's film. Mine (8 and 11 years old) loved it. The foreign scenery, the French feeling of the figures, the sound and songs, the clumsy but lovely nanny, everything was fine for them. And for me.
They laughed about her ride on a donkey, the repeating appearance of the driver, the stupid crooks. They felt with the little girl.
I believe you have to see the film like a kid does, staying in present time. Don't think about the future, the next scene, just enjoy.
