Storyline

A young mother Nina and her son Enzo find themselves sleeping on the streets on the street of Paris. Their tentative lifestyle eventually leads them to Versailles. Out in the woods near the palace, they encounter a man named Damien who lives cut off from the rest of the world. Nina and Enzo decide to take refuge with him over night. The next morning, Nina appears to have dissappeared. As days and seasons pass, Damien and Enzo grow fond of each other, unaware that one day they will have to leave the safe haven of the hut.

DVD without subtitles
5 May 2009 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Although the film (or what I could made up of it) es nice, touching and well acted, French DVD lacks subtitles and it's a pity. I don't understand why they do this, preventing all of us to buy their products. So, if you want to understand the whole of it, you'll have to wait until the film is available in your not French speaking country. Hmmm! That's too bad!

On the other hand, the story is compelling, realistic and has an extra interest: the cast is magnificent. They all are great actors, including the boy. We can also see one of the last performances Guilaume Depardieu made before his premature death (aged 37). Photograph, sometimes too dark, but effective, music nice, etc. Just the problem with the subtitles made me give the film so low a vote.
