Heartbreaking, raw emotion from the soul of an anguished 4-year-old girl. When the child's mother dies in a car accident, Ponette's (Thivisol) father takes the disbelieving girl to live with an aunt and two young cousins. Ponette enters the world of her two cousins, Matthias (Bureau) and Delphine (Schiltz), and though she never doubts her mother will return someday, she heals and grows. Doillon does a remarkable job of capturing the purity and innocence of children.
