Samuel Goldwyn Films is bringing the latest transportive film by BAFTA Award-winning director Michel Ocelot, Dilili in Paris, to select U.S. theaters and video on demand this fall. Winner of the 2019 César Award for Best Animated Feature and selected as the opening film for Annecy 2018, the jewel-hued visit to turn of the century France will debut stateside on October 4.
Synopsis: Travel to the upper reaches and lower depths of Paris in the Belle Epoque with Dilili, a graceful young girl with eagle-eyed smarts as she investigates the mysterious plot of the Master Men. Together with Orel, a delivery boy who ferries her around the sweeping photorealistic and jewel-toned landscape as only expert animator Michel Ocelot could conceive, Dilili will stop at nothing until justice is restored. Our super sleuths journey through a turn-of-the-century world so evocative, you just might spot Picasso, Proust, or Marie Curie.
The film is directed and written by Ocelot (Kirikou and the Sorceress, Azur & Asmar), produced by Christophe Rossignon and features the voices of Prunelle Charles-Ambron, Enzo Ratsito and Natalie Dessay.
