Until the age of two and a half, Amélie describes herself as a digestive tube, inert and vegetative. Then comes the crucial event that makes her tumble into childhood. Over the course of six months, she discovers language, parents, brothers and sisters, a heavenly garden, passions (Japan and water), aversions (to carp), seasons and time. Everything that, from the age of three, constitutes the human person forever. Because at that age, everything is played out, happiness as well as tragedy… This is the message that this mischievous baby sends us, observing the world with acuity.
