The Elephant and the Butterfly

The Elephant and the Butterfly ★★★★

An absolutely lovely, sweet sweet (too) sweeeeeeet Belgian film about an estranged father and his 5 year old daughter getting the unexpected opportunity to spend their first days together. It made me so happy. Adorable performance by the young girl.

However, as charming as it becomes, it's ultimately too slight to be more meaningful. We get subtle glimpses but I wish we got to learn about the history of the parents and what has led to this unfortunate situation.
