The Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery

The Hedgehog (Le Herisson) Set in the back drop of a Parisian bourgeoisie set of apartments, cared for by the prickly and seemingly insignificant female janitor who has found the perfect place to hide her intellect and wisdom, until she is uncovered by the new sophisticated handsome tenant, who gentle knocks at her door and she hesitantly at his. The story is documented and interwoven with the intellectual cutting wit of a desolate poor little rich girl, with a suicide mission that never reaches reality but who finds solace in filming the failure of her family life in the apartment above the janitor, with whom she develops and a deep and meaningful relationship with . . It is this failure/loss of love which bonds the three together in this beautiful stunning film. Well scripted, beautifully shot, supreme acting leaves you ...well you really need to go and see it for yourself...I did and think most people would love and agree that this debut from Mona Achach. A first time feature film directer surpasses that of amateur to auteur, with her adaptation of the novel The Elegance of the Hedgehog, by Moroccan-born French novelist and philosopher Muriel Barbery, which topped as one of the best selling books in France.
