As always, the French did it again
23 August 2000 | by (Cap-de-la-Madeleine, Canada) – See all my reviews

For me, only French directors can do good films with children, because in their movies, children acts like real children. In American films, children are always full of tears, little beast for the pleasure of adults. In Canadian films, kids always talks like an adulte screenwriter. But in France, kids are really kids, like in this one! I can name a lot of others films with children like that : La Guerre des Boutons, Promis Juré, Le Petit Prince a dit, etc. Here is a warm story about solidarity between young people face to the adult world. They protect each other from the incomprehension of the adults. I saw La Fracture du Myocarde in a movie theatre in 1991, and I have it on video cassette. I look at it from time to time and still really love it, because it's fun and very human.
