Stop thief !

age 8 +

Bandits and robbers are legendary characters in the history of cinema. But they are not always what we think: through these six films set in very different universes, you will meet lovable bandits, gentle and mischievous thieves and other, more sinister rogues. These figures are indispensable to adventure films and provide opportunities to address topics such as friendship, grief, family and unemployment. This course starts with a readily understood animated film and concludes with a neo-realistic Italian film and a film noir, charting a real progression in terms of cinematographic sophistication. So you are strongly advised to complete the course by watching the films in the suggested order.
