“both thoughtful and charming…the end result is never anything less than a winsome and perceptive jaunt.” (Concrete Playground)

“a small-scale delight…It is an effective and easy-going little gem…Vignal has directed an effortlessly amusing film…Laure Calamy is outstanding as Antoinette…It is wonderful stuff – modest yet perfectly formed.” (Fiction Machine)

“fizzy, feel-good comedy. Calamy creates a full-fledged character out of a cosmically bird-brained ditz, and makes us love her. And as it turns out, the mule makes a pretty charming companion too….Tender and funny” (Film Forward)

*Please take note that doors open 30 minutes before showtimes. We encourage people to arrive early. We have a small box office, a small candy bar, and a single-screen cinema, meaning that when most of an audience shows up a few minutes before showtime, it causes a bottleneck. If possible, we appreciate you arriving a little bit early to pick out your seat and get your popcorn. Thanks for your help!

Antoinette, a school teacher, is looking forward to her long planned summer holidays with her secret lover Vladimir, the father of one of her pupils. When learning that Vladimir cannot come because his wife organized a surprise trekking holiday in the Cévennes National Park with their daughter and a donkey to carry their load, Antoinette decides to follow their track, by herself, with Patrick, a protective donkey.
