One of the greatest Quebec film of the 80s

Fanny (Mahee Paiement) is a young orphan girl who is sent to live with her detached Uncle Jonathan (Raymond Legault) when her grandmother enters a nursing home. As Jonathan prepares for an organ recital of music by Bach, he tries to provide a proper environment for his young niece.

Fanny collects other animals in addition to her pet skunk Broccoli with the help of her upstairs neighbor Sean (Harry Marciano). Just before Fanny is to enter a foster home, Jonathan realizes he loves the little girl and makes a promise to keep her and her animal menagerie.

Beautiful, touching and intelligent, this film is good for people of all age.

But don't ever rent this movie in english...never!

My Rating:7/10
