Synopsis, translated from French with Google translation, very bad but
enough to know what's going on:
"One day, the wife of Chinese household Adeline hurriedly disappears
leaving him on the arm of his son six years. What will she do with this
child who does not speak a word of French and she does not even know
the name? With the help of Delphine, her sister, she decides to return
by all means mom "Cookie", the nickname given to the boy. While
multiplying the steps, she starts to smile again and cling to him ..."
here's is the translation from the only french critics, Abuse de ciné
Gaëlle Bouché (French)(again, translated by Google's primitive
"A succession of nonsense sometimes questionable
This is a subject that could have been more sensitive. The story of an
undocumented child separated from his mother and raised by a woman
devastated by the death of his family, speaks naturally, a little bit
of emotion. But here, nothing like that. Instead, the director
approaches his subject from an angle at least incongruous, that of the
romantic comedy. Under the pretext of finding the boy's mother, the
scenario is lost in many hesitations in the Adeline family. It compares
the woes of two inseparable sisters. One suffers the loss of his
family, while the other can not suffer his. Add to that a former cop
with a big heart lover, a beautiful jealous brother, cutesy niece,
revolutionary nickname and we went through a succession of clichés and
syrupy somewhat displaced given the drama that saw the little boy.
Indeed, Lee Yu who speaks only Chinese, will most often be an object
that trip without knowing what to do. We dons a nickname - "Cookie" -
while everyone knows his name. Allowed to sleep on the sofa without
taking the trouble to install a bed (at least not in the early days),
and finally when we see that it is tall for his age it strikes us as
absurd "since that they are rich, the Chinese are the largest. "
Emerges some discomfort, because this comedy regularly leans toward the
dubious Asian caricature. Furthermore, no scene is really credible.
This is a film where general information listen to the telephone
discussions of two teenagers streaked supposedly anarchists (note that
the teens while they are at 10 meters distance phone). This is a film
where you phone the police with a Chinese accent ridiculous whether a
undocumented was arrested. And finally, here's a movie where the
Chinese customs is going on with a 6 year old boy in his suitcase
(fortunately it was a cabin baggage).
You will understand, "Cookie" than by the accumulation of these
defects. The result is all the more unfortunate that the ambiguous
discourse seems totally assumed. In these difficult times where issues
of undocumented are often synonymous with distress, this is a film that
deserves only thing disappear quickly screens."
