Product Description

Nicolas leads a peaceful existence. His parents love him, he's got a gang of great friends with whom he has a lot of fun, and he has no desire that anything should change... But one day, Nicolas overhears a conversation between his parents that leads him to believe that his mother is pregnant. He panics and imagines the worst: soon a little brother will be there who will take up so much space that his parents will no longer have time to take care of him. They'll even go so far as to abandon him in the woods like Tom Thumb...

-----

Nicolas mène une existence paisible. Il a des parents qui l’aiment, une bande de chouettes copains avec lesquels il s’amuse bien, et il n’a pas du tout envie que ça change… Mais un jour, Nicolas surprend une conversation entre ses parents qui lui laisse penser que sa mère est enceinte. Il panique alors et imagine le pire : bientôt un petit frère sera là, qui prendra tellement de place que ses parents ne s’occuperont plus de lui, et qu’ils finiront même par l’abandonner dans la forêt comme le Petit Poucet…

I had feared that this film, based on the books by the prolific "scenariste" Goscinny (see Asterix, Lucky Luke, Iznogoud) would not be able to deliver the humour, warmth, and innocent worldview of its written progenitors. My fears were unfounded. The idiosyncrasies of the main characters from the books are faithfully reproduced for the silver screen. The film amalgamates several of the short stories and stays true to the gentle pace from the books. It's visually strong and also benefits from the commitment--sans being too hammed-up--of the actors to portraying the foibles, triumphs, and misadventures of a group of young boys and their well-meaning parents. A delight in its own right, but also an homage worthy of the original author.

Ordered this from Canada as - for shame - not available on dvd in the UK. A real treat of a film, revealing the world through the eyes of a child - the time and place almost immaterial. My wife and I both teach primary (elementary) school kids and the humour, observation, emotions and exploits are spot on. Laughed and cried and laughed again. Excellent.

Just as the books, le Petit Nicolas is the view of the adult word from a little boy's point of view and it is very funny. A movie the whole family will enjoy.

A fun take on the lovely French book series about the young Parisian schoolboy Nicolas. Not a laugh a minute, nonetheless mildly amusing throughout. The players were all suitably « sympa », and the story offered a good cross-section of Nicolas' many adventures from the books. In fact, the kids were all uncannily 1950ish, something all too rarely seen in these days of Hollywood homogeneity. Somehow, illustrator Sempés wry perspective wasn't quite brought to life, but a gently amusing experience overall, with subtitles making it suitable for home and school viewing.

This is a cracking little French comedy made in 2009. It stars Maxim Godart as the little Nicolas and he is a talent to watch out for and has already made another two films. In this he leads what he knows is a charmed life, loving his parents, his home and his school mates – well all except the Teacher’s pet ‘cockroach’ grass one with glasses.

Then one of their class mates has a new arrival – a baby brother and he relays that life is now the pits for him, worse still he stops coming to school and no one knows why. Then Nicolas overhears his parents talking of a visit and they say he must be gotten out of the way. He now knows that not only will he be getting a baby brother but that they are going to dump him; possibly in the woods as the urban myths have it.

So he sets out on a charm offensive and all his school chums are going to help – badly that is. As his demise gets closer their plans become ever more urgent and funny.

This is set in the sixties and just oozes style and charm in equal dollops. The clothes the cars the primary colours and lack of office technology and casual sexism are all just brilliant, well maybe not the sexism. The acting is superb with a cast of kids that are all brilliant, entertaining and funny in all the right places. This is laugh out loud at times too and had me wanting more. Sandrine Kiberlain as their teacher deserves special mention as she is really good and well rounded as always. She is also in the ruddy excellent ‘The Women on the sixth floor’.

This is also one for the whole family as kids will definitely get it too. This tells the story and the reasons they do things all from a child’s perspective and the collective naivety that can come from kid group decicions, which is just great. So for a refreshing warm, family comedy in France based sixties, you need look no further - really warmly recommended.

It was a great story and my whole family loved it. I would recommend anyone of any age to watch it. My kids still talk about it and have gone back and seen it many times over.

I've shown this movie to my FSL students and even the ones that hate French, loved this movie. A movie you can watch over and over again. I highly recommend it.

Very funny movie that captured the mood of the original "Le Petit Nicolas" book by Sempé/Goscinni quite faithfully. The actress playing the Maitresse is particular interesting. The Agnon boy is really funny. Fans of Sempé's masterful illustrations (myself included) might find that Nicholas' mum and dad are a bit older and less attractive than they are portrayed in the books but the movie characters are still funny in their own ways. All in all this is a very enjoyable movie. The behind the scenes/making-of materials are nice too.

My 8-yr-old son who has read the original books is also a big fan of this movie and is never tired of watching it repeatedly.

I hope there is a blu-ray HD version of it one day!
