Sara de Roo,
In a juvenile lockup, a new ward answers questions: she's Rosie, 13, no parents, a sister Irene, a brother Michel. In flashbacks we find out what happened. She lives with Irene, who's 27, whom Rosie knows is in fact her mother, but that's their secret. Irene's brother Michel, unemployed, a compulsive gambler, comes to stay with them. Around then, Irene meets Bernard; they come to care for each other. This leaves Rosie without attention, so she puts all her adolescent hopes and romantic fantasies into a relationship with Jimi, a good looking kid she sees on a bus. Is it adventures with Jimi that land her in juvie? Once she's there, why doesn't he answer her letters? Written by
"Rosie" is riveting... a very bleak, very disturbing coming-of-age story... the kind of movie that wouldn't get made in Hollywood in a million years...
It's about a thirteen year old girl's relationship with her mother... about how that relationship is affected by the men in her mother's life... that's just the tip of the iceberg... to say more would spoil the twists and turns that await the unsuspecting viewer...
I've seen a lot of movies this year, and this is one of the very best... see it if you get the chance...
