Storyline

Léa is a student who grew up as an orphan. She lives with her grandmother who once brought her up and who now relentlessly demands Léa's full attention, even at night time. One night her grandmother, whose state of mind deteriorates increasingly faster, slips off and strolls around without heading for any particular destination. Léa panics in the course of finding the old women. Consequently she makes sure her grandmother is taken care of full-time in an appropriate institution where she can keep her own furniture and receives a therapy to slow down her mental descend. Léa, who works in a nightclub, can no longer cover her expenses by just cleaning tables. She starts working as one of the strippers and earns additional money with lap dance. She starts to spend her time between nightclub and university in a brasserie and takes the owner as her lover. Unfortunatey he has to tell the obviously permanently exhausted Léa that he can't cope with her erratic behaviour. When a young and vain ... Written by lament

not a TV thriller but worth the trouble
16 July 2013 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Léa is not just the "student stripper" suggested by the German title and by some reviews. She is a sensitive girl, intelligent and gracefully beautiful, who has obviously never had it easy. The scenario does not waste time on background details, you can either forget about them or imagine your own - really the film is about how Léa looks for something which has been missing in her life. I watched it in three sittings, as I found I needed to reflect a little on what I had seen and what it meant for the protagonist (I use the singular because it is no coincidence that the original title is just "Léa" - of the other characters, only her grandmother really seems to matter).

A film which I will want to watch again.
