Directed by Jacques Doillon
wonder Victoire Thivisol, in some of the most extraordinary
child acting to grace the big screen, stars as Ponette, who is sent off by her father to
live with her relatives after the death of her mother in a car accident. Ponette is
inconsolable and will not accept the fact that her mother is never coming back. But
ultimately it is her faith, love and strength of character that
enable her to triumphantly overcome her tragedy. "Remarkable
one of the most sensitive, luminous films about
the very young ever made" (Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times).
French with English subtitles. 92 minutes.
