That pleasantly elongated title relates to a young lad’s absent mother and the letters he intermittently receives from her. Little Jean clearly yearns for the comforting clutch of maternal love. But with a father too involved in his working day to take much notice, Jean begins to resort to fantasy as a means of filling the void. Directors Merc Boreál and Thibaus Chatel’s simply animated film is based on Jean Regnaud and Emile Bravo’s acclaimed book of the same name.
