  • a.k.a. Roald Dahl's Matilda

Germany German (Deutsch)

Matilda ist ein Kind von bemerkenswerter Intelligenz und mit außergewöhnlichen, telekinetischen Begabungen gesegnet. Leider sind ihre egoistischen und dümmlichen Eltern, der schmierige Gebrauchtwagenhändler Harry Wurmwald und die aufgetakelte Bingospielerin Zinnia, viel mehr mit sich und dem Fernseher beschäftigt, als zu bemerken, dass Matilda ein Genie ist. Und die Schule, die sie für ihre Kleine aussuchen, gleicht einem Gefängnis: Die gemeine Direktorin Knüppelkuh führt ein wahres Schreckensregiment. Doch Matilda setzt sich mit ihren besonderen Fähigkeiten zu Wehr - und dann steht nicht nur die ganze Schule Kopf ...

France French (Français)

La petite Matilda vient à peine de voir le jour, que déjà ses parents et son grand frère la rabrouent... Il est vrai que son père, Harry Verdebois, petit escroc sans envergure, se serait bien passé d'une autre bouche à nourrir, et que sa mère, qui passe son temps devant la télé, avait déjà fort à faire avec Michael, son fils aîné, qui est un vrai cancre... Matilda, qui grandit dans l'indifférence de la famille, est dotée d'une intelligence hors du commun. A quatre ans, elle sait déjà lire et s'est elle-même inscrite à la bibliothèque, où elle dévore tous les livres qu'elle trouve intéressants.

Matilda 6 mitica

Matilda nasce in una famiglia benestante, in cui i genitori e il fratello la trattano in modo indifferente e la considerano una seccatura. All'età di sei anni la bambina riesce finalmente ad andare a scuola grazie ad un accordo fra il padre e la terribile preside di una scuola: Agatha Trinciabue, una donna arrogante che ritiene tutti i bambini una condanna. Fortunatamente Matilda trova nella sua maestra, la signorina Jennifer Honey, nipote della preside, una donna molto dolce e una grande amica.
