    • Synopsis
    • THE FOX AND THE CHILD recounts the story of a magical, life-changing encounter between a wild fox and a young girl, portraying the story of their impossible? Friendship played out against a breathtaking mountainside wilderness.
      Springing from his own formative childhood encounters with a fox, and drawing on years of wildlife documentary expertise to craft a dramatic and thrilling narrative seen almost exclusively from the animal’s perspective, director Luc Jacquet will allow audiences an unprecedented journey into the magical, secret world of this most elusive and enigmatic creature.
      Through Jacquet's camera, the audience will become the fox: will enter its skin, share its senses, experience the dangers it faces, perceive the images and sounds that surround it.
      At the same time, THE FOX AND THE CHILD will act as a mirror, enabling us to re-examine our relationship with the natural world while experiencing it anew, heightened and magical through the enchanted eyes of one innocent, awe-struck heroine.
      Where matchless wildlife documentary meets fiction, a fabulous, timeless universal tale emerges. "Standing on tiptoe to push opens the hidden door to the wilderness. Trying to repair the broken tie between man and animal. Overcoming fear and shyness to dare to be tamed.
      And rediscovering, as if by enchantment, a young girl, through the eyes of a fox. and the world of a fox, through the eyes of a young girl.?
      Full of wonder, the fox and the child head off on a utopian quest for friendship."
