My Life as a Zucchini: there is a simple naïveté in both the story told and the way Claude Barras’ film looks that makes it enchanting. The story has a solid footing in reality and moves at a good pleasurable clip, but it’s a tad low on conflict; nevertheless, it’s very humane and engaging. The characters are well-defined, even if not all of them get much attention. Visually, they are very distinctive, even if the models (and the world, as a whole) are simplicity itself: that’s far from a problem, as stop-motion gives the right flavor for the story. The voice acting is pretty solid, as all kids are equally good.
