Mabel's Saga / Le voyage de Mabelle

Top of page

Mabel is juggling the demands of work, teenagers and an elderly mother. Now, she is confronted with a new challenge: hot flashes and chin hairs! Before you can say "estrogen," purple-haired Mabel finds herself the unassuming heroine of her own adventure... the adventure of aging.

Mabel's Saga is a touching, funny film that celebrates menopause as a natural transition. The film blends colourful computer animation with a lush musical landscape, offering a reassuring look at one of the most important passages in a woman's life--and showing that aging brings its own rewards. A film without words.
