"Dear Me. Today I am seven years old and I'm writing you this letter to help you remember the promises I made when I was 7, and also to remind you of what I want to become..." Thus begins the letter that Margaret receives on her 40th birthday. An executive at a multinational construction firm, Margaret's regimented lifestyle revolves around meetings, business dinners and pre- scheduled sex with her partner. But when a retired notary delivers a stack of letters written by Margaret when she was seven years old, the successful professional begins to rethink her existence. The letters -- an exuberant assortment of photographs, vibrant collages, and playful messages -- evoke long-forgotten memories and childhood dreams of adventure and true love. Moved by the words of herself at 7, Margaret returns to her childhood village to rediscover the fanciful dreams and playful idealism of her youth…to somehow re-connect with the happy-go-lucky, carefree child she was.

If you're willing to suspend disbelief in several spots, a sweet little movie.

Margaret the driven businesswoman is thrown for a loop by a barrage of mail from her child self, Marguerite (whose arty, scrapbooked letters look like they came from a battalion of movie props masters). This fluffy, inventive, feel-good romantic comedy has a coming of age in reverse twist.
