dotwho: I strongly recommend this movie. Not trying to spoil it but there are some clues in the beginning of the movie about what the real story is but, ignore those and you have a wonderful mystery to solve.
anyone77: Two kids about ten years old meet within a very peculiar framework: both come from broken families and are in care of foster homes... whatever that is! The film is not especially good in production. It's more of an amateur film, but, nonetheless it's a very convincing story that sandwiches tons of strong realities of our times in 93 minutes.
spnkng: A totally wonderful and beautiful movie about a little town in France and the people in it. Everything changes when the mother and duaghter comes there with their chocolate and breaks every unwritten rule of the town.
Important messages and superb acting.
