Odette, a little 9-year-old girl, is raped by one of her parents’ friends. She grows up, becoming an adult and a professional dancer. She tries to rebuild her life after years of excess, years of drug addiction, of depression and toxic relationships.
Praised by critics, it tackles the taboo question of sexual violence against minors and pins it on the big screen, accessible to everyone. Everything is shown: the shame, the denial, the silence, the anger, the after-effects, the difficult recovery, the love, and the joy.
Andréa Bescond, after writing her book and her staging her show, winning the Molière Award for Best One Man Show 2016, touches us again and even more with this cinematic adaptation.
Thank you for this testimony.
