Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Iconoclastic French filmmaker Jean-Pierre Mocky plays a washed-up race car driver in Divine Enfant. Much against his will, Mocky is put in charge of a cute orphan girl and her cuter dog. Grudgingly won over by all that cuteness, Mocky agrees to hide both girl and pooch from the authorities. The star of Divine Enfant also directed the film, exercising his usual prerogative of tweaking the nose of various sacred cows. Like America's Rocky and Bullwinkle, the film is adult satire posing as kiddie fare. And like Jean-Pierre Mocky's earlier films, it doggedly avoids predictability.
