Every Friday afternoon Cathy’s parents place her on the back seat of their car and take her to the family’s country house. And once her seat belt is on, they completely forget she exists. Or at least that what Cathy thinks in A pas de loup, which assumes the viewpoint of the little one in such a determined way we don’t even get to see the grownups’ heads. In order to prove it, she decides not to get in the car when they head back that weekend. When mom and dad realize they missed a tiny detail, she’s already deep into the forest, living an adventure that features echoes from classic stories like “Hansel and Gretel” or “Jack and the Beanstalk”, but doesn’t need magic or spells: the wonders and small dangers in A pas de loup are actually very earthly, or as earthly as a six year-old can think and imagine them. And nothing will get fixed in this family movie (in every meaning of the words: the starring family is the one of filmmaker Ringer, even the wonderful Wynona/Cathy) until we adults learn to think and imagine like kids do, at least for a little while.
