Rich story-telling
20 November 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is such a rich story that it could entertain and succeed in several ways, depending on your point of view. It's a story about old age, about family relationships, and wise characters who know when to stay quiet.

For myself, it was a story of how children can trick you, or charm you, or drag you kicking and screaming out of your comfort zone. And where did they learn to do all this? From none other than ourselves, when we did it to them. Still, they seem to be so much better at it than us; our comfort zones are so much more rusted into place.

Just an observation: Why are middle-aged heroines in French films so often called Helene?
