Every day, find the program of films and series to see on TV. Tonight: a big-hearted bull, Juliette Binoche in a feminist comedy and the return of “UFO(s)” on CANAL+.
THE FILM OF THE DAY
After having directed the first three opuses of Ice Age, Robots or Rio 1 and 2, Carlos Saldanha adapts a classic of children’s literature written by Munro Leaf in 1936. Already brought to the screen by Walt Disney in 1938 as an Oscar-winning short, “The Story of Ferdinand” thus becomes a feature film produced by Blue Sky studios.
Released in 2017, Fernando allows a whole new generation to discover the story of this bull with an imposing build and a big heart. A hymn to tolerance that alternates between great moments of emotion (dealing with the themes of bullfighting and self-acceptance) and laughter (special mention to hedgehogs and horses). A strong message backed by the film’s original song, “Home“, performed by actor and singer Nick Jonas.
