Dir. Jacque Doillon
Live-action films about the very young are rare, and even more rare are such films that work as well as Ponette does, without cloying or pandering. The film stars 4-year old actress Victoire Thivisol as Ponette, who’s lost her mother in a car accident. Doillon captures what the faith of a child looks like in this woefully out-of-print film. A perfect Easter film.
