After five years away, Antoine returns to Brussels, determined to confront his past. He knocks at the door of the woman he's loved and left, but arrives just as she is about to go on an important business trip. The babysitter is running late and, in a moment of panic, she asks Antoine to stay with little Elsa for a few moments. Caught off-guard Antoine agrees, but the babysitter does not arrive.

Critic Reviews for The Elephant and the Butterfly (Drôle de père)

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

Belgian director Amélie van Elmbt's lovely trifle The Elephant and the Butterfly is as sweet and gentle -- and at times simplistic -- as its storybook title may imply.

It says something about the film that it's impossible to watch without imagining the even moister American remake.

April 30, 2018 | Full Review…

The film benefits greatly from the adorable yet equally gifted Doillon.

September 6, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/4.0 | Full Review…

Beautifully shot and lit in a way that brings out all the richness of detail Elsa sees in the world, this is a beautiful piece of filmmaking. It's gentle, leisurely and likely to melt the hardest of hearts.
