A family moves into a new home and neighborhood outside Paris. Mom is going to have a new baby soon, Laure is 10 years old and her younger sister, Jeanne is 6 years old. Laure wears her hair short and wears boyish clothes, Jeanne has long curly hair and she likes to wear her ballet costume. Laure starts to meet the kids her age in the neighborhood but she tells them her name is Mickael and lets them think she is a boy? Jeanne doesn't tell their parents and goes along with this idea so she can tag along to play with the kids her age.
This is a very quiet and slow paced film with very little action. It's all about facial expressions and personal interactions. I had a difficult time maintaining my interest because of the pacing. 3* (This movie is OK)
