Beautiful, bitter-sweet little tale about a father, kept on his feet by his two daughters, after his wife/their mother, has died, manages to avoid all the tearjerker-pitfalls. His sorrow, the way they take care of him, the sisters' growing apart and him being both unable to be a strong parent and to let go of them, all shown in a very subtle yet funny way.
Darroussin specializes in sensitive roles and this is one of his best yet.
And the musical theme (Letkiss, a 60's novelty hit for a Finnish trumpeter(!)) lingered in my ears for weeks.
