A young love story
20 February 2014 | by NeoWizardSee all my reviews

This is a beautiful and strange love story between two twelve years old.

It is strange because the children are not typical characters a boy Ludovic pretty much left to himself all the time with barely any parental supervision and love. He falls for a girl at his school who is in a loving family where the dad is almost never home either.

Both children have emotional scars and just fall in love with one another. I don't want to give away the twists but it is well worth seeing since it helps understand mental health issues and scars are not only for adults.

It is an emotional drama well worth seeing but

There is some unclear stuff in the plot that is left pretty much to interpretation and is the reason I only give it an 8.
