Directed by Patrice Toye
In this powerful
exploration of the troubled adolescent mind, a 13-year-old girl suffers
from the non-maternal treatment of her young mother (who insists on
treating her as a sister) and a dangerous involvement with her fantasy
life. Eventually, the conflict between her romanctic dreams and
her painful reality collide. An auspicious debut feature. "Toye is
neither a glamorizer nor an exploiter, she's a lyric sympathizer with a
filmmaking gift comparable to Kieslowski, Bergman and Malick..."
(Wesley Morris, San Francisco Examiner). Flemish with English
subtitles. 97 minutes.
