Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Seuls au Monde was released outside of France as Alone in the World. Social worker Francois (Rene Lefevre) is disgusted by the fact that a group of institutionalized orphans are psychologically abused by The System. Overstepping his bounds, Francois liberates the kids, then sets up his own humane orphanage with the help of a wealthy man who himself had been orphaned as child. The usual anal-retentive bureaucracy threatens this enterprise, but the arrival of Genevieve (Madeleine Robinson), the film's heroine, miraculously solves everyone's problems. Seuls au Monde boasts an appealing cast and workable storyline; however, the film's overabundance of dialogue made it difficult to market in America.
