Gaspard grew up in zoo. A literal zoo: his eccentric family kept tigers and monkeys and bears (and the latter rubbed off a bit too much on his sister, who dons a bear pelt and sniffs strangers upon contact). Following years of having kept a careful distance, Gaspard is forced to return on the occasion of his father’s new marriage. In need of a date, he asks open-minded Laura, who he randomly meets on a train, to accompany him. Neither one of them knows what they’re getting into, but the result is a charming and affecting look at the bonds of family and the animal-like instincts in us all.

An opening party will be held at a private residence a few blocks away from the Prytania Theatre prior to the Opening Film. The party is invite-only and is exclusively for French Film Festival Patron Pass holders. Get your pass here or become a member here.

Gaspard a grandi dans un zoo. Un vrai zoo : sa famille excentrique a adopté tigres, singes et ours – sa sœur s’est un peu trop frottée à ces derniers, elle revêt désormais une peau d’ours et renifle les étrangers qu’elle rencontre. Après s’être tenu à distance pendant des années, Gaspard se voit forcé de les revoir à l’occasion du nouveau mariage de son père. Ayant besoin d’une compagne, il demande à son amie Laura, ouverte d’esprit et rencontrée par hasard dans le train, de l’accompagner. Aucun des deux ne sait dans quoi ils s’embarquent, mais le résultat est un charmant et affectueux regard dans les liens de famille et les instincts primaire en chacun de nous.
