A giggly eight-year-old French child (Noël-Bruneau) strikes up a friendship with a fox she meets on the way home from school. This marks a step forward in narrative storytelling for Jacquet, who successfully depicts the fox as a wild and uncontrolled force in a non-Disney manner. An often beguiling account of how mankind and animals can exist in harmony.
