Synopsis: Based on a best-selling novel, first-time writer/director Mona Achache‘s 11-year-old (played by Garance Le Guillermic), wants to end it all on her 12th birthday. Fascinated by art and philosophy, she documents her life and immediate circle, drawing trenchant and often hilarious observations on the world around her within a Parisian apartment building. But as her birthday approaches, Paloma finally meets some kindred spirits in her solitary concierge Renée Michel (Josiane Balasko) and an enigmatic and elegant neighbour Mr Kakuro Ozu (Togo Igawa). Freely inspired by Moroccan-born Muriel Barbery‘s international literary success, The Hedgehog leaves a deep impression. No car chases, no explosions, no convoluted plot twists – yet it’s utterly captivating simply because the characters are so well drawn and full of humanity.
