Vanessa is a little girl of ten years of seriously ill. She left the hospital after a series of chemotherapy, to the delight of his little brother and his parents.
However, the disease is not eradicated, and it is with fear that his parents about the future. Between hope and defeat.
His father wants his daughter to live Halloween and Christmas at home, not in the hospital, or not at all.
He then sets out to find in the middle of July, pumpkins for Halloween early.
His neighbor maraicher in which he asks for pumpkins and a Christmas tree in summer understands what is happening, and is moved by a father who tries to make his life more beautiful girl without knowing what will happen tomorrow .
He decides to help, and one morning, Vanessa and her parents discover dozens of pumpkins in front of their house. Then there are the children of the neighborhood knocking on their door to "celebrate Halloween"
Then in August, after a short hospital stay, this is the city which is decorated for Christmas decorations, and making surprise to Vanessa and her family.
I was very moved by the film that was never released on the big screen.
Contrary to what might suggest the summary, it hardly speaks of the disease Vanessa, so we do not fall into the pathos and drama at all costs, even if we see it, and feel throughout the movie
No, what emerges is that of solidarity and generosity that will raise the disease this girl that parents hide all modesty.
Recently, I was very moved by a news story in France. Newspapers relataient the solidarity of employees in a company, learning childhood leukemia a colleague were all given a portion of their leave to allow the father to be with his son without loss of money or his position, and this had risen to solidarity boss who himself had a hand in the dough.
Here, we find this love, this solidarity too often forgotten in our current lives.
An entire city, who, learning the misfortune of one of their own and decide to support parents in their project "to accelerate the time", it's just beautiful!
Some would say that this movie stinks romance, blue flowers and romance cheap. To me it just shows that in a world that has become selfish, such things can happen and it's worth it to keep hope in his next.
A wonderful film to watch with a box of tissues handy
