Pauline and Paulette is a 2001 Belgian comedy-drama film directed and co-written by Lieven Debrauwer.

Pauline (Belgian actress Dora van der Groen) is mildly retarded and lives with her sister Martha (Julienne De Bruyn) in a Flemish village. Pauline's other sister, Paulette (Ann Petersen), the owner of an upscale boutique, sees Pauline as disruptive to the orderliness of her shop -- and her life. Things come to a head when Paulette forces the issue of which sister will care for Pauline.
