It's a French stop motion film for kids released last month and put forward for the Oscars. It's about a child who survives abandonment by his parents and the friendships that he makes.
So far I only saw the trailer. The story is based on a much harsher book written for excluded teens, but it has been softened to be appropriate for littles.
I don't know whether it's available outside Europe yet, but there is a subtitled in English version on youtube. It made me smile and I thought it might delight someone here over Xmas. I particularly like the facial expressions of the characters, and the childrens' voices: their bravery touches my heart.
