Each week, FrenchFlicks selects a French film available on TV5MONDE Cinema on Demand. The streaming service presents an assortment of 30 French language films including recent releases and timeless classics, festival favorites, films and series never before seen on television in the US!
This month, TV5MONDE Cinema On Demand offers a selection of films for the whole family, including Lou, a quircky and colorful comedy!


Lou is twelve years old and likes to dream up imaginary worlds. Emma, her melancholy mother, has sacrificed her personal life to devote all her time to her daughter. Their little bubble bursts when Emma rediscovers love and Lou finally dares to speak with Tristan, the boy next door...

"Lou ! est un film familial plein de charme et de tendresse, qui propose un univers original." - Les Fiches du Cinéma
