A four-year-old girl must come to terms with the loss of her mother and the reality of death in this award-winning French drama. Little Ponette (Victoire Thivisol) is riding in a car with her mother when they're involved in a serious accident; Ponette survives, but her mother does not. Her father (Xavier Beauvois) initially reacts with anger over his late wife's careless driving, while her Aunt Claire (Claire Nebout) tries to comfort the child by telling her about Jesus and the resurrection. However, none of this does much to reassure Ponette or clarify her confusion about the practical realities and spiritual dilemma posed by death. In time, Ponette and her cousins Matiaz (Matiaz Caton) and Delphine (Delphine Schiltz) are sent off to boarding school, where they have to resolve their confusion and loss on their own. ~Mark Deming, Rovi

The curse makes him lose weight at a dangerous pace and he has to convince the chief of the gypsy community to take the curse of or he will die. Somewhat humorous but I think where the real beauty of the film lies is the vengeance he seeks on his wife who is sleeping with his doctor and the mobster who voices for fat Tony off of the Simpson's. Quite an entertaining story while there are nor real scares besides a small amount of gore.

Wayne K (de) wrote: Here is a movie that proves once and for all that you don't need expensive set pieces, extravagant budgets, big-name actors or an excessive runtime in order to touch the heart and speak to the soul. The best word I could use to describe the layout and aesthetic of the film is simplistic. It's filmed in black and white, uses non-professional actors, has no action scenes and was made decades before C.G.I. was even a dream. What the film does is strip everything to the bare bones, exposing the very nature of the human being and all its flaws and weaknesses. On the surface, it's a story about a man who has his bike stolen, and if he can't retrieve it he'll lose the job he so desperately needs to feed his family. But his quest to accomplish this turns out to be an allegory for the uncaring and selfish nature of humanity. His encounters with angry mobs, unscrupulous locals and unsympathetic authorities drive him to the brink of despair. It's a testament to the films legacy that the issues it raises are still just as relevant and important today as they were then, more half a century ago. It's rightly regarded as one of the most important and influential movies ever made, and its final scenes are some of the most emotionally affecting in the history of cinema.
