The animated film Ballerina is currently in the finnish movie theaters’ program. We have the French version DVD in the library (loan for 1 week).

In the 1880s, eleven-year-old Félicie, a poor orphan girl who dreams of becoming a ballerina, but lacks formal training, runs away from her orphanage in rural Brittany with her best friend, Victor, a young inventor. Together they go to beautiful Paris, but they soon become separated, and Victor becomes an office boy in Gustave Eiffel‘s workshop. Félicie finds her way to the Paris Opera, where the guard catches her trespassing.
