This is one of the best movies I have ever seen!!! The child actress is phenomenal and the story so moving. A top notch film.

A deeply and on target film. The young actress who is Ponette is amazing. A very smooth,deep and discreet way of talking about a dear relative's death. It may help people in such a distress to talk about death with very young children (4-5 years old). Be sure to see the film before your children to evaluate if it is suitable for them (it is all about are they mature ehough to handle the topic?) Even if the parents think that it is not suitable for their children, they can get paths to open a discussion with their children about the death of a beloved relative.

To watch the performance of the tiny French actress who portrays Ponette, a young girl who copes with the loss of her mother, is heartwrenching and so convincing that I had to convince myself that I was NOT watching a documentary.

The actress who plays Ponette is exceptional. She was so convincing that I must confess I shed a tear or two. Its a must see.
