MARCH of the Penguins director Luc Jacquet swaps feathers for fur and fact for fiction with this charming, modern-day fairytale of a friendship which develops between a girl and a young female fox.

A young redhead (Bertille Noel-Bruneau) comes across a fox on her way back from school one day. The two become close but the friendship is threatened when the girl attempts to domesticate the animal.

Aimed at the child market, the story is easy to follow, especially due to the narration by Kate Winslet as the now-grown-up girl. More a series of lush images than a narrative-driven piece the film has an appealing, dreamy quality.

The Child and the Fox is out on DVD now. Certificate U.
