Dir. Anca Damian. 2020, 92 mins. In French with English subtitles. A GKids release. The poetic and touching film from director Anca Damian follows an optimistic stray dog named Marona (inspired by a real dog Damian rescued from the streets of Bucharest, Romania) as she looks back on the human companions she has loved throughout her life. Delivered alongside dazzlingly colorful, sweeping designs produced in part by acclaimed artist Brecht Evens, Marona’s Fantastic Tale is a life-affirming story told with the patient, boundless love of a dog, and reminds us that happiness is a small thing.
