Gérald Hustache-Mathieu :: France :: 2006 :: 1h36

A young orphan finds herself in the tranquility of a secluded monastery, till the day that she is invited to join the order as a nun. One of her ‘sisters’ tells her she has a brother, and helps her with a two week secretive leave so that she can find him. In the outside world she tracks him down, discovering she has a family, life and love.

If the story sounds like sweetness wrapped in sugar, then you have made your first step into understanding this debut feature-length movie by Hustache-Mathieu. The movie is as naïve and pretty as it is simple and just. It manages to avoid being tedious thanks to a talented young cast, but will be mostly forgotten because of its lack of depth, intrigue or development. Is best served with a box of chocolates on a couch, for those who indulge in the likes.
