Movie Info

When the mother of 12-year-old Martin suddenly dies, his schoolmates rally 'round to keep the authorities from finding out lest they send the fatherless youth to the dreaded local orphanage. This off-beat French drama, chronicles their efforts that begin with a midnight burial of the poor woman's body (placed inside a grandfather clock) in a lonely field. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
