Pupils Rewrite French Film’s Ending

Pupils in Years 7 to 11 watched the 2010 French film Une vie de chat (‘A Cat’s Life’, titled ‘A Cat in Paris’ in English) as part of a ‘More, Able and Talented’ (MAT) event organised by the French Department.

However, the film was paused before the finale to allow pupils to take part in the Sir Robert Taylor Society’s annual French film competition, organised by the University of Oxford. The competition asks entrants to use their creativity to write their own plausible ending to the story. The entries can be in English or French and in any format up to 1,500 words: an essay, play or screenplay, storyboard, short story, or even a filmed YouTube video!

Girls were given time to think about, discuss and write down some of their ideas for a new, imaginative ending at the MAT event. They then watched the real ending of Une vie de chat as a final bit of inspiration, with the warning that their entries must be original and inventive to qualify for the competition.

Pupils were left feeling enthusiastic about the world of French cinema and eager to submit their ideas to the competition.
