Anatole is always dragging his little saucepan behind him. It gets stuck everywhere, and it keeps him from getting on. One day, Anatole cannot bear it anymore, and he decides to hide. Ah, but things are not that simple.
Director’s Statement: Eric Montchaud
One day my son found the illustrated book by Isabelle Carrier in the back of the library and he asked me to read it. I immediately knew that I wanted to make a film. I knew this character — I saw him move, and all I wanted to do was share Isabelle’s story. So I contacted her, and to my great joy, she was at once delighted and disturbed to see Anatole freed from the pages of her book.
