Storyline

A 10 year old girl lives in post WWII rural France with her parents, who are about to divorce. Her older sister leaves home to finish school, and the young girl is left with a mysterious, almost silent housekeeper. Being afraid of the dark, and of other "phenomenoms" including a haunted château nearby, she curiously accepts a stranger she finds in her mansion's barn. This fact contradicts her fearful nature, but fulfills her loneliness. The stranger has run away from a nearby psychiatric clinic, where her father was treating the stranger. She hides the stranger, protects him, and he becomes her best friend. Is this girl searching for true companionship, coming of age, or is she asserting her independence for the first time in her short life? Written by Gonz30

Relaxing, innocent drama
26 March 2009 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

I saw this today at a critics screening for Tijuana, I was expecting a children's movie, but I can't imagine children watching this film, it takes patience and innocence to go through it seriously. Its a slow, bright, cute film about a dealing with small problems at a young age. There isn't much to say: The acting is above average, the whole asthetic is rustic but enchanting, the characters are well developed, but the script is just a little dull. You will get into the story but you'll be drifting in and out at times. Still this is a very good-looking, feel-good film, worth a watch (especially for young women).
