“Le renard et l’enfant/The Fox and the Child” is French film aimed at children.

Synopsis: “Le renard et l’enfant/The Child and the Fox” is a Disney France, family film depicting the timeless tale of a friendship forged between a young girl and a country fox.

The story is told from the perspective of a young girl who becomes preoccupied with a wild fox she encounters when exploring the woods near her home. We follow the highs and lows as she develops her tracking skills to locate, approach and eventually befriend her fox.

Laced with elegant and panoramic nature filmography, “The Child and the Fox” presents a timid and highly moving portrait of a child fascinated by and engaging with nature.

Whether you decide to watch this film in French or English language, the cultural differences between French cinema and that of Britain and America are poignantly presented in this motion picture. Where Disney USA would have anthropomorphised the fox and depicted a friendship which disregards the boundaries of an interspecies relationship, Disney France has embraced and celebrated the real beauty of such friendships. “The Fox and the Child” seamlessly delivers nail biting tension without compromising on the authenticity of nature.

This film will leave children wanting a pair of binoculars to study and interact with the nature in their local area while promoting a cautious and responsive attitude to interacting with wildlife.
