Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)
St. Paul Pioneer Press

The only thing in Pauline and Paulette that you haven't seen before is a scene featuring a football field-sized Oriental rug crafted out of millions of vibrant flowers.

About as satisfying and predictable as the fare at your local drive through.

The film is ultimately about as inspiring as a Hallmark card.

... a nicely observed, certainly well-intentioned film, with a touching and heartfelt message, but it's also exceedingly slight and ultimately unremarkable.

Yet another iteration of what's become one of the movies' creepiest conventions, in which the developmentally disabled are portrayed with almost supernatural powers to humble, teach and ultimately redeem their mentally "superior" friends, family...

It is easy to watch, yet at the end, unsatisfying.

Less a heartfelt appeal for the handicapped than a nice Belgian waffle.

The acting in Pauline And Paulette is good all round, but what really sets the film apart is Debrauwer's refusal to push the easy emotional buttons.

That director Lieven Debrauwer has presented, in only 78 minutes, such richly drawn characters at such a leisurely pace seems like a minor miracle.

Not the kind of film that will appeal to a mainstream American audience, but there is a certain charm about the film that makes it a suitable entry into the fest circuit.
