The Golden Tortoise

A Short film by Célia Tocco, Célia Tisserant

Produced by Les Films du Nord

A couple lives happily in a humble, tumbledown house. One day, the man catches a tortoise with a golden shell in his nets.

A tender and modern approach to this classic fable that illustrates humanity's unfortunate tendency toward greed.
