Storyline

When seriously ill teenager Milla falls madly in love with smalltime drug dealer Moses, it's her parents' worst nightmare. But as Milla's first brush with love brings her a new lust for life, things get messy and traditional morals go out the window. Milla soon shows everyone in her orbit - her parents, Moses, a sensitive music teacher, a budding child violinist, and a disarmingly honest pregnant neighbour - how to live like you have nothing to lose. What might have been a disaster for the Finlay family instead leads to letting go and finding grace in the glorious chaos of life. Babyteeth joyously explores how good it is not to be dead yet and how far we will go for love. Written by Alex White

This is why I love cinema
12 July 2020 | by choquetflorianSee all my reviews

This movie is pure love. It captured everything. I am so grateful for art like this to exist and to remind us we are alive. I think it's the best music I've ever heard in a movie in years. It is a masterpiece because it used everything this very diverse form of art has to offer to deliver such a palpable, direct, honest, and real taste of the beauty inherent to life and love. I'm always shocked when I discover a movie like this, stunned by the clarity and the truth of the vision it offers. Watch it, live it. Thanks to everybody involved in this piece of art.
