Pauline and Paulette

Movie Summary

Director:
Lieven Debrauwer
Released:
2002
Rating:
PG
A delightfully bittersweet story of four elderly sisters and their relationship with each other. For Pauline (Dora van der Groen), life is simple. She lives with Martha (Julienne De Bruyn), the eldest of her four sisters, in a small town between Brussels and the seacoast. When Martha suddenly dies, everyone's world is turned upside down. Neither Paulette (Ann Petersen) or their youngest sister Cecile (Rosemarie Bergmans), feel they can be responsible for caring for their sister.

    The New York Times Dana Stevens

    Rather than assaulting you with self-congratulatory tears, it leaves you with a bittersweet glow of wisdom and an appreciation of the small triumphs and difficult labors of love.

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    This beguiling Belgian fable, very much its own droll and delicate little film, has some touching things to say about what is important in life and why.
