In 2013, Ernest and Celestinethe beautiful animated film by Stéphane Aubier, Vincent Patar and Benjamin Renner, won the César in this category, after having had great success in cinemas: more than a million spectators had made the trip to the cinema to discover this adaptation of the famous children’s books by Daniel Pennac, since December 2012. The public, like the critics, were delighted: “Pennac knits an insolent, iconoclastic and inventive scenario, wrote First. In the end, in 2D without being flat, tender without being cutesy, moral without being uplifting, the story is good.”
