(1932, Julien Duvivier) Freckled carrot-topped 11-year-old Robert Lynen is a long-suffering Cinderella at the hands of his monstrous mère and bratty siblings, while père Harry Baur just keeps clear, until... Two great performances (and both later killed by the Nazis) in Duvivier’s adaptation of Jules Renard’s 1894 autobiographical novel. Approx. 86 min. 35mm.

"In Poil de Carotte, Harry Baur, Catherine Fonteney, and the young Robert Lynen showed the world that, given sound, the French could act."
–Richard Roud, Rediscovering French Film

“A film of great tenderness and lyricism.” – Lenny Borger
