Belle & Sebastien

Directed by Nicolas Vanier

France | 98 minutes | 2013

French and German with English subtitles

Set against the breathtaking scenery of the snowy Alps during WWII, Belle & Sebastian tells the timeless tale of a boy and his dog. The resourceful Sebastian is a lonely orphan who tames and befriends a giant, wild mountain dog—Belle—even though the villagers believe her to be “the beast” that has been killing their sheep. Meanwhile, the Germans have arrived at the peaceful village looking for resistance members who are helping Jewish refugees escape into Switzerland. Through their adventures together, Belle and Sebastian forge an indestructible friendship in the face of imminent danger. Remade from the 1960s TV series beloved around the world, Belle & Sebastian is a beautifully sensitive and immediately charming crowd-pleaser.
