Storyline

A divorced Swiss couple must come to terms with their daughter's life-threatening illness. He, a scientist, snatches his daughter from the examining table at the clinic and takes her away as if to kidnap her from the disease. His ex-wife, an actress, takes to bed weeping uncontrollably when she learns of her daughter's tumor. The girl's step-mother, an Asian-American physician, is clinical in her response, outlining a treatment regimen of surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. It is left to the girl herself, ten-year-old Violette, to be calm, reassuring, philosophical, and even metaphysical as she faces death. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Excellent artistry can't overcome tragic subject matter.
15 June 1999 | by Dick-44See all my reviews

This movie presents a week in the lives of a mother, father and little girl who is diagnosed as having inoperable glioma. The script is intelligent and avoids sentimentality. The acting is very good. The direction is excellent. The movie is just about perfect in every way.

But who wants to see a movie on this subject? I recommend the movie to anyone who enjoys having the 24-hour flu.
