The Fox and The Child ~ A beautiful movie

My children and I watched The Fox and the Child tonight. We had found it at our local library, and not knowing anything about it, gave it a try. This movie is beautiful. It almost felt like a documentary, with little dialogue and breath-taking nature photography. It is the story of a young girl that befriends a fox. From french director Luc Jacquet (March of the Penguins), it is narrated in english by Kate Winslet.

I would like to warn you that there is a sad part towards the end of the movie, where the fox gets hurt, but it all ends well in the end.


  1. Ok, I got all teary-eyed just watching the trailer. How bad is that? I have to see if our library has this. Even if Gavin isn't interested, I want to see it now!

  2. It looks like you can watch the whole movie on youtube in 9 minute segments. Type in the name of the movie and scroll down for the video marked the fox and the child 1, and then continue to watch through the rest of the videos. I am going to do this as well.


I ♥ comments! Thank you for stopping by.
