The French title "Les Petits Mouchoirs" refers to an idiomatic expression that is similar to the English term "Sweeping something under the rug". You cover something up with a napkin or a handkerchief and pretend it's no longer there even though everyone knows it is. The English term "Little White Lies" is a similar if not identical concept.

Look, if you are looking for an incredibly funny movie, or an incredible drama!... don't watch this, you have to see this one expecting nothing from it, and i really think you will be pleasantly surprised with it, it's a solid story, really well written, i honestly in one moment got lost in it i thought i was watching like a documental or whatever, it seemed so real, the things that happen in the movie are so real, all the story, it's a movie about redemption, with a real message, the kind of message like "there are more important things in life than money" and all that stuff, it's really good.
I have to be honest, i only watched this movie because Marion Cotillard was in it , and she is one of my favorite actresses, so, i saw it expecting nothing and i really liked it.
Give it a try, its a story about family, love, it's sad... it makes you laugh, it's really REALLY good.
