Movie Info

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.

Audience Reviews for Pauline and Paulette

  • Sep 04, 2010
    A wonderfully sweet and simple film, sentimental but never sappy. I found it completely absorbing thanks to outstanding performances and great art direction, I especially loved the use of colour. I have not come across a film that portrays someone that is mentally challenged (and their caregiver,) in a way that felt this authentic.

    Endearing little film about an elderly amatuer opera diva who begrudgingly takes in her adoring mentally handicapped sister in order to fulfill her late sister's will, is the very definition of gentle. Simple yet magical, this beautifully rendered and sublimely acted Belgian confection is a feel good movie of the highest order. Simply wonderful.
