A film that touched my heart

Beautifully observed. Strong leads with an amazing chemistry that seems to draw in all the other characters as the story progresses. The emotion in the final scenes is particularly powerful.

Just lovely. Glad I saw it

A simple story beautifully told and well acted. The star is the little girl - watch out for her as a budding actress. Her acting brings tears to the eyes at times. Filming locations are lovely and interiors are carefully chosen. Really enjoyed this one and thoroughly recommend it for when you're in a more pensive mood.

Beautifully made film about a father and a daughter

The Elephant and the Butterfly is a children's book that five-year-old Elsa likes to hear at bedtime. Elsa is played by Lina Doillon, the daughter of one of the filmmakers, Amélie van Emblt, in one of most naturalistic and engaging film performances by a child that I've ever seen. This film follows three summer days in the lives of Elsa and her father, Antoine, (Thomas Blanchard, who plays this new father in a real and endearing way), whom Elsa first meets when Antoine returns to Liège, Brussels after being away learning to be a chef. Antoine stops by to see Elsa's mother, Camille, (Judith Chemla), whom he used to be in a relationship with, just as she is headed out to catch a flight to an important business meeting. On the spur of the moment, Camille, who is clearly ruffled by Antoine's unexpected appearance, asks him to watch Elsa until the babysitter comes. The babysitter never shows up, and so a few minutes of watching Elsa turns into a few days. Father and daughter are elephant and butterfly as they get to know each other in this beautifully made slice-of-life film that is focused on the organic and lovely way their relationship unfolds as the two realize they love each other. The filmmakers do not explain why Antoine left and didn't see his daughter. Sometimes I don't want a story to spell everything out for me. I liked that we, the audience, were left to fill in the blanks. This is a wonderful film for those, like me, who gravitate to character studies. Few films stick with me after they end like this one did. Thank goodness for art house movies. Produced by the Dardenne brothers and Martin Scorsese.
