Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that The Zigzag Kid is a subtitled film from the Netherlands based on a book by David Grossman that has dialogue in French, Dutch, and English. Set in the late '60s and early '70s, this coming-of-age story about a 12-year-old boy trying to discover the truth about his past has some mature themes, including suicide and mental illness, making it best for older tweens and up. There's also some talk about relationships, a couple of kisses, and references to an adult's amorous past. A policeman points a gun at a criminal and is accidentally shot in the arm. Felix carries a gun, and Nono points a gun at Felix in anger. Adults drink wine with dinner, and one smokes a pipe. "Merde" ("s--t" in French) is said three times, though it's not translated in the subtitles.
