Mike McCahill of The Guardian writes:
“An oddly charming curio: an English dub of a live-action French film observed from its heroine’s perspective. At the end of a weekend away, knee-high Cathy (Wynona Ringer, the director’s daughter) runs off to the woods when her parents leave for home. What follows is like a Gallic Home Alone, sidelining parental panic in favour of telling asides on how the young register time and basic tasks differently. The editorial pleas to pay proper attention to the seeds one plants are heavily underlined, but Ringer has an endearing presence: her uncertain scrabbling yields something both more truthful and spontaneous than Moonrise Kingdom, this season’s pre-eminent runaway success on the subject of how we all once approached the world.”
