Borderline life

An exceptional piece of art and a very emotional movie it takes you to a very sad story about a young woman who becomes an emotional cripple due to her mentally ill mother,she is raised by her grandmother.

Her life before 30 is a far from fairy-tale. Sex and alcohol are her only outlets and her daily reality , so much emotions , tears , laughs and nudity .

An outstanding performance by the very attractive and a pleasure to watch Isabelle Blais (Kiki ) the main Character in the movie . The music was so nice and sad.

The film was well done and thoughtful.

It is a must see.
