WHY WE LOVE IT

A Swiss production awarded in Berlin and Valladolid that follows in the footsteps of social cinema films like those by Ken Loach or the Dardenne brothers. As the saying goes, one doesn’t choose their family but ends up with the one they get, and this is what happens to a group of teenage girls placed in a foster care center who live with their fellow residents and caregivers, forming a sort of forced family where, like in all families, intimacies and tensions are part of daily life. With a style halfway between a documentary and neorealism and performances filled with naturalness by non-professional actors, Frédéric Baillif’s film exudes authenticity, emotion, and sensitivity, and is a beautiful and touching ode to life.

SYNOPSIS

A group of teenage girls have been placed in a residential care home with social workers. They live under the same roof but haven’t chosen each other. This experience creates unexpected tensions and intimacies. An incident triggers a chain of over-reactions but their lust for life also strengthens bonds. Just like a family.
