This little film returns a little sunshine to the world. There are a lot of people here trying to make this a better world. We need something like this after a half year of the coronavirus and years of incompetent government. I have been laying this movie to the side thinking being from Finland, it might be a little obscure. Boy was I wrong! The most positive and believable film I've seen this year.

Charming, positive film. It's not real-life, but certainly something to think about. The booklet that comes with the DVD helps you understand some of the choices made by the director.

Nice but too sentimental.

This is a slow-paced human drama with a twist of comedy in it. The happy ending is a bit contrived but overall this is one enjoyable film about human passion. In French with subtitles.

Terrible Film - Nothing happens for the first hour. Bad quality, bad directing. Camera often focuses on a character's face staring into the distance for an abnormally long time (10 + seconds). Characters are either smoking or drinking every 5 minutes in the film. Superbly boring. The worst French film I have ever watched.

A lovely fairy tale.

A great movie with some great life messages. The use of color and cinematography were exceptional. Little Bob is truly a gem to be shared with the rest of the world.

In a world gone mad, this is a little glimmer of hope. Little Bob should run for office. VIVA LA PARIS!!!!!

Talk about a low budget movie, this felt like a French soap opera. Nothing great here, expected more.

I wasn't looking for a feel good movie but found this. It was lovely to see the lead character do what needed to be done for the young boy although it took him great effort, time and courage. It was also great to see an older person who wasn't worn down by life and embittered. There are a lot of horrible events happening in the world but at the same time it is people like Marcel kind and unselfish of heart who make the world a better place and give the innocent a chance at life.
