Trivia

Andréa Bescond and Eric Métayer wanted to detach themselves from the construction of the show, to adopt different angles and to develop "collateral damage": the way a family breaks out or the part of responsibility and guilt of each one. Because it is above all a choral film. See more »

A strong testimony
25 November 2018 | by Sebastien02See all my reviews

Andrea Bescond got deeply involved in this project. She did not only co-write the script and co-direct the movie with her husband, but she also had the leading role. Adapted from her play of the same name, the story is based on her own experience. As a victim of child abuse, she succeeds in making the plot believable. Thanks to her humor and her energy, it never falls into melodrama. We understand that this trauma left a permanent mark on her mind and that it took years to tidy things up. Dance and psychotherapy helped her release her pain. Even if I was a bit disturbed by the back and forth between past and present, reality and fantasy, I found the movie interesting. Especially because it sounds genuine. Moreover, it shows that child abusers can look like anybody. Most of them are indeed acquaintances or relatives.
