Festinema! Le roi et l'oiseau

  • Alliance Française de St. Louis 930 McKnight Road Saint Louis, MO, 63132 United States (map)

In March, we are hosting a FREE film showing every Wednesday at 6:00pm. Come join us, and bring the kids along, for evenings filled with French cinema.

The movies are geared toward children of varying ages, but that doesn't mean adults can't enjoy these films. Plus, it gives you a great opportunity to work on your French listening skills!


This second Wednesday, we will be showing Le roi et l'oiseau.

In this animated feature, two lovers -- a chimney sweep (Serge Reggiani) and a shepherdess (Anouk Aimée) -- live as characters in a painting owned by a ruthless king. In order to escape from the king, who is in love with the shepherdess, the characters emerge into the three-dimensional world outside their painted confines. The king is intent on capturing the duo for his own evil purposes, so the lovers seek assistance from the quick-witted Mr. Wonderbird (Pierre Brasseur).

87 min | Animated | Ages 7-12 | French with English Subtitles

Space is limited. Please RSVP!
