Colette and the Princess

An unpleasant princess with a cold visits the town of Grasse and demands absolute silence during her stay. The father of Colette, the Mayor, unhappily forbids all the clatter and noise of a happy, thriving country town. When the princess takes over Colette's favourite spot in the market place for her "repose," only the kitten ChouChou is able to drive her away to a grove of oaks above the town. The Jardins de la Princesse Pauline (Napoleon's sister) are still there and afford a view of the historic center of Grasse, the sea and the massif of Estérel.
