The value of small things is tenderly endorsed in this miniaturist French cousin of
Alice In Wonderland
Olivier Ringer directs his daughter Wynona as Cathy, a six-year-old so convinced her parents think she’s invisible that she flees to the woods while on holiday.
As she nurtures seeds, hedgehogs, ladybirds and fish – nature’s tiny, magical treasures – Olivier teases an unselfconscious performance from Wynona and honours his heroine’s pint-sized perspective.
Her dreamy inner monologue dominates this slight but guileless charmer: sweetly, it practises the respect for the seeds we plant that it so gently preaches.
