Not on screen. The dad of one of the kids committed murder-suicide, and that same kid later says she might kill herself if she's forced to live with her aunt.

Zucchini accidentally kills his mother at the start of the movie by dropping an attic door on her head. We hear her fall but no body is shown.

Camille's backstory involves her father shooting her mother and then himself. This is not shown on screen.

Arguably. A policeman is supportive of Zucchini and becomes a father figure to him over the movie. Other kids in the orphanage, however, don't like cops. (SPOILERS) The policeman eventually becomes his and another main character's foster parent.

Most people voted no, but arguably one of the characters might show early symptoms of pica, including eating a whole tube of toothpaste.

If you're watching a subtitled or dubbed version, possibly not. In the original French version a character says "great, another autist" as an insult.
