From Shirley Temple and Jackie Cooper to Patty Duke and Anna Paquin, the movies have given audiences many memorable performances by child actors. But still the news out of the recently concluded Venice Film Festival was enough to raise some eyebrows: a 4-year-old girl won the best actress award.

To watch Jacques Doillon's "Ponette"--one of the most sensitive, luminous films about the very young ever made--is to be reminded that the French cinema has traditionally paid more attention to children than that of any other country.

With some amusement, I read about all the brouhaha surrounding 4-year-old Victoire Thivisol's best actress award bestowed unanimously upon her by the Venice Film Festival's jury ("Younger Actresses Get the Parts . . . and Now Awards," Sept. 16). The not-so-quiet response and dispute by many questioning the validity of giving this honor to such a "young" actress only points out the widespread misunderstanding of the art of acting itself.

The filmmakers tried to use real chocolates, but, alas, they melted under the hot lights.

"Chocolat" is as delectable as its title, but for all its sensuality it is ultimately concerned with the spirit. A fable of deceptive simplicity, adapted for the screen with mature skill and wisdom by a young American screenwriter, Robert Nelson Jacobs, from Joanne Harris' novel, it emerges as a splendid work in the grand humanist tradition of the classic cinema of France, where it takes place.

Four years have elapsed since Juliette Binoche made the transition from European art-house icon to internationally recognized film actress. She did it in a single leap, in Anthony Minghella's "The English Patient," as Hana, a French Canadian nurse in World War II traumatized by grief when her boyfriend is killed in action.
