Nicolas leads a peaceful existence. His parents love him, he's got a gang of great friends with whom he has a lot of fun, and he has no desire that anything should change... But one day, Nicolas overhears a conversation between his parents that leads him to believe that his mother is pregnant. He panics and imagines the worst: soon a little brother will be there who will take up so much space that his parents will no longer have time to take care of him. They'll even go so far as to abandon him in the woods like Tom Thumb...
Nicolas mène une existence paisible. Il a des parents qui l’aiment, une bande de chouettes copains avec lesquels il s’amuse bien, et il n’a pas du tout envie que ça change… Mais un jour, Nicolas surprend une conversation entre ses parents qui lui laisse penser que sa mère est enceinte. Il panique alors et imagine le pire : bientôt un petit frère sera là, qui prendra tellement de place que ses parents ne s’occuperont plus de lui, et qu’ils finiront même par l’abandonner dans la forêt comme le Petit Poucet…

Then one of their class mates has a new arrival – a baby brother and he relays that life is now the pits for him, worse still he stops coming to school and no one knows why. Then Nicolas overhears his parents talking of a visit and they say he must be gotten out of the way. He now knows that not only will he be getting a baby brother but that they are going to dump him; possibly in the woods as the urban myths have it.
So he sets out on a charm offensive and all his school chums are going to help – badly that is. As his demise gets closer their plans become ever more urgent and funny.
This is set in the sixties and just oozes style and charm in equal dollops. The clothes the cars the primary colours and lack of office technology and casual sexism are all just brilliant, well maybe not the sexism. The acting is superb with a cast of kids that are all brilliant, entertaining and funny in all the right places. This is laugh out loud at times too and had me wanting more. Sandrine Kiberlain as their teacher deserves special mention as she is really good and well rounded as always. She is also in the ruddy excellent ‘The Women on the sixth floor’.
This is also one for the whole family as kids will definitely get it too. This tells the story and the reasons they do things all from a child’s perspective and the collective naivety that can come from kid group decicions, which is just great. So for a refreshing warm, family comedy in France based sixties, you need look no further - really warmly recommended.
My 8-yr-old son who has read the original books is also a big fan of this movie and is never tired of watching it repeatedly.
I hope there is a blu-ray HD version of it one day!
