Synopsis
Charlie, almost 24 years old, leads a life without excess : she dreams of being an artist and struggles to make ends meet. When her brother comes to see her after twelve years of absence, everything rushes. Vincent is 30 years old and just released from prison where he served a long sentence. He has everything to learn in a world he no longer knows. Charlie’s ready to help him. It is her brother after all, her brother whose anger can become uncontrollable and destroy everything in spite of him.

REVIEW

“Nathan Ambrosioni, 19 ans seulement, signe un film sensible et ombrageux”.-Le Figaro

“La photographie est soignée, le montage audacieux, et les comédiens, parfaitement dirigés, apportent toute leur sensibilité à un récit touchant en plein coeur. Prometteur.”-Le Journal du Dimanche

“The topic of extreme youth, as seductive as it is, wouldn’t stand up on its own without the incredibly strong narrative control demonstrated by the filmmaker.”-Cineuropa
