The animated film Belle by Japanese director Mamoru Hosoda will have a world preview at the 74th Cannes Film Festival in the Cannes Première section. A great performance in an animation that is expected.

After The Wolf Children, Ame and Yuki (2012), The Boy and the Beast (2015) then Miraï, my little sister (2018), this is the first Official Selection for Mamoru Hosoda. Belle is the third film by animation presented at the Festival this year after Where is Anne Frank by Ari Folman and Le Sommet des dieux by Patrick Imbert.

New wave of young animated film directors

With this new wave of young animated film directors, Mamoru Hosoda pierces the universe and directs the viewer into his poetic and avant-garde world.

Belle tells the story of Suzu, a complex teenager living in a small mountain town with her father ... in real life. Because in the virtual world of U, Suzu becomes Belle, a musical icon followed by more than 5 billion followers ... With this film, Mamoru Hosoda returns to the subject of virtual worlds that he had already dealt with in Summer Wars.

Romance and entertainment

"Belle is the film that I have always dreamed of creating," said Mamoru Hosoda, "and that I can finally make today thanks to the culmination of my past films. In this film, I explore romance, action and suspense as well as deeper themes such as life and death. Hope it will be a great entertainment show. "
