Born in the jungles of Borneo forty years ago, Nénette the orangutan is now the most senior inhabitant of the world's oldest zoo – and the star of this awe-inspiring, tender and funny film, from the director who charmed the world with 2002's BAFTA nominated Etre et Avoir. What we see is Nénette, going about her daily business; what we hear are the voices of the many visitors who pass comment on her every day, and reveal more about themselves than they think.
