The Dandelions (Du vent dans mes mollets) by Carine Tardieu (France, 2012, 89 min.). Sassy nine-year-old Rachel lives with her adoring but overprotective mother (Agnès Jaoui) and distracted Holocaust survivor father (Denis Podalydès) in 1980s provincial France. Rachel forms a bond with her eccentric child psychologist Madame Trebla (Isabella Rossellini) and a new best friend, wild-child classmate Valérie. Featuring engaging performances by a cast of A-list actors, The Dandelions brims with quirky charm and humor, imaginative production design, and an unpredictable story suspended between realism, pathos, and flights of fancy. “Sweetly entertaining” (Variety). Encore screening of The National Center for Jewish Film's Annual Film Festival Jewishfilm.2013, rescheduled from April.
