Le hérisson - The Hedgehog - 2009 French dvd directed by Mona Achache. Paloma is a serious, but deeply bored 11-year old, who has decided to kill herself on her twelfth birthday. Fascinated by art and philosophy, she questions and documents her life and immediate circle, drawing trenchant and often hilarious observations on the world around her. But as her appointment with death approaches, Paloma finally meets some kindred spirits, in her building's grumpy concierge, and an enigmatic, elegant neighbor, both of whom inspire Paloma to question her rather pessimistic outlook on life. Stars Josiane Balasko, Guarance le Guillermic, Togo Igawa and Anne Brochet. French audio with optional English subtitles, unrated (rated 10 in Switzerland - the equivalent of PG-13).
Based on the best-selling book by Muriel Barbery - read the book, then see the French film - then the American remake!!
