Kid Flicks One gives a warm welcome to all budding cinephiles with this lively international lineup of fun. Kick off the festivities with good hygiene and great dubstep in Party Mouth (USA), then let your hair—or, er fur—down and hang loose in I Want to Live in the Zoo (Russia). And, even if you get into a tangle, there will be someone to catch and cheer you on with the charming If You Fall (Canada).
