Synopsis / Plot
Pauline is a 'little girl of 66 years old'. She is mentally retarded and been cared after by her sister Martha. Pauline and Paulette is a delightfully bittersweet story of four elderly sisters and their relationship with each other...

For Pauline (Belgium's national treasure, Dora Van Der Groen), life is simple. She lives with Martha (Julienne De Bruyn), the eldest of her four sisters, in a small town between Brussels and the seacoast. Martha loves Pauline, and cares for her day in and day out. Pauline has a love for flowers and enjoys running errands in town for her sister Paulette (Ann Petersen) - her idol. Paulette owns a fabric store in town, but her grand passion is performing at the opera house. When Martha suddenly dies, everyone's world is turned upside down. Neither Paulette or their youngest sister Cecile (Rosemarie Berghmans), who lives in Brussels with her French boyfriend (Idwig Stephane), feel their lives can include the responsibility of caring for their simple minded sister. While both are in agreement to commit Pauline to a nursing home, Martha ultimately dictates the final word, stipulating in her will that all her worldly possessions would go to the three surviving sisters on the condition that one of them care for Pauline.
