Kids will love this movie. And parents might like it too! To enjoy it properly though, I think you would have to know french and be able to watch it in that language.
Fanny (Mahée Paiement) is only 10 and she's living with her grand-mother (France Arbour) because her parents died in an accident a few years before. But the grand-mother can't take care of her anymore so she ask her nephew, Jean-Claude (Raymond Legault), to care for little Fanny.
So Fanny moves in with Jean-Claude, her uncle. But the cohabitation is not easy. Jean-Claude is use to live alone and he doesn't know too much about children. While trying to find a new family for Fanny (even though she doesn't want to hear about it), Jean-Claude is learning a lot about himself and his relations with others.
The movie takes place in beautiful Québec city. You can see the old town, the Château Frontenac, the Plaines d'Abraham, etc.
When that movie came out, I was only 13, and I fell in love with Mahée Paiement, the girl who played Fanny! Even today, I think she's one of the prettiest actress in French Canada. You can see her occasionally in the tv-series «Un gars, une fille».
Out of 100, I gave «Bach et bottine» 70.
