Poignant and with several delicately wrought moments, this otherwise by-the-book tearjerker is about a little brother and big sister looking for their long-lost father. Nadine Trintignant (wife of Jean-Louis Trintignant) co-scripted and directs her two children, nineteen-year-old Marie as the eponymous sister and five-year-old Vincent as the brother, also by the same name. After their mother dies, Marie and Vincent are forced into the care of an iron-willed, iron-fisted Aunt Jeanne (Lucienne Hamon) whose militaristic view of life soon drives them to run away. The two set out for Antibes knowing that their father captains a private yacht in that port. Along the way they meet up with a kind writer who takes care of them for the night, a slightly off-the-wall man who gives them a ride, and a few other characters. It certainly looks like the long-awaited meeting with their father will really happen.
