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>

a different angle on the usual "terminal" disease movie
27 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

This is the most touching movie I have seen in a long time. It takes a different look on the theme of "terminal" disease. It mainly shows how the parents (mostly the father) cope with the fact that their daughter doesn't have that much time on this earth, subsequently they don't have much time with her. The movie however doesn't concentrate on the girl herself. In fact she is ignorant of what is driving her parents to change their attitude towards her and each other. She's happy of course as it brings her parents back together (emotionally at least), but her character remains in the background as we see her father trying not to think of what's to come and make her as happy as he can even for a little while and her mother coming out of her initial denial.
