Directed by Vincent Bal

Netherlands-Belgium-France | 95 minutes | 2013

Dutch, English, French with English subtitles

Based on the bestselling novel by renowned Israeli author David Grossman, The Zigzag Kid is a delight for all ages. Its hero is a smart, sassy 13-year-old boy on the brink of his Bar Mitzvah with a rich imagination and quite the knack for getting into trouble. This fast-paced, superbly written story is a mesmerizing mixture of genres: detective story and coming-of-age tale, with a dose of romance. Screen legend Isabella Rossellini plays an ingénue nightclub songstress and Burghart Klaussner (Goodbye, Lenin!) plays a criminal mastermind in this whimsical adventure that has wooed film-festival audiences around the world.
