There is always hope - even when there seem to be none
21 May 2018 | by StockholmViewerSee all my reviews

What a nice movie. What a wonderful story. The French actress, writer and director Sara Forestier is worthy of all praise. For having made such a touching portrait of the girl in lead in this story about love that conquers everything against all odds. For having written and directed this movie - her debut as director - about the fight to survive in a world which gives you one big challenge after the other. I left with tears in my eyes and a strong good feeling in my heart. Sara shows us with this movie that there is always hope - even in places and situations where there seem to be none.

As an extra attraction the movie lets us see the French actor Jean-Pierre Léaud - famous from François Truffaut's "Le quatre cent coups" (1959) - in the role as the girl's father.
