Tang Yun from Together directed by Chen Kaige. He was found at a violin competition and had no prior acting experience.

I forgot to include Ponette's Victoire Thivisol. Runner's up include the children that played her cousins: Matiaz Bureau Caton and Delphine Schiltz and of course, my previous nomination above.

Of course, both children in Bergman's "Fanny and Alexander" are wonderful actors.
I think, that one of the best child's perfomances is Nikolay Burluaev's one in the "Ivan's childhood" of Andrey Tarkovsky.

Agree strongly - the top 10 list I posted a few months ago on the "Best performance by a child?" thread is as follows (not in order of preference):

1. Bjorn Andresen (Death in Venice)
2. Jean-Pierre Leaud (Les 400 Coups)
3/4. Gaspard Manesse/Raphael Fejto (Au Revoir Les Enfants)
5. Benoit Ferreux (Le Souffle Au Coeur)
6. Pierre Blaise (Lacombe Lucien)
7/8. Bertil Guve/Pernilla Alwin (Fanny och Alexander)
9. Wojciech Klata (Dekalog 1)
10. Kolya Burlaev (Ivan's Childhood)

I suppose it may have changed since then, but off the top of my head, nothing yet.

NOT the children in 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' with their sqeaking voices, that's for sure. :-)
