    Subject

    LE FIGARO
    A singular, sensitive, and deeply moving film between documentary and fiction, Willy the First is well worth watching.

    LE NOUVEL OBSERVATEUR
    There is something here that reaches beyond Willy, a fundamental enthusiasm and an exemplary way of behaving. This film is nothing short of an ode to freedom.

    TELERAMA
    Packed into eighty minutes and divided into chapters, this story sustains constant tension, alternating between openly comical scenes, flights of poetry, and dark moments in which we sense the inevitability of a dramatic event.
