A FAIRYTALE-LIKE SOCIAL DRAMA ABOUT TWO SIBLINGS ON AN ODYSSEY

Life is like a rol­ler-coas­ter ride for 15-year-old Billie and her youn­ger bro­ther Nico. Nothing gives them secu­ri­ty. Of cour­se, their father loves them but when he drinks too much, he is unpre­dic­ta­ble. Their mother is even less reli­able. But Billie and Nico do not give up their dream of a beau­ti­ful youth. They run away with the neigh­bor Malik, expe­ri­ence adven­tures and make friends, until rea­li­ty cat­ches up with them again. In grai­ny black and white, occa­sio­nal­ly inter­rup­ted by color sequen­ces and shot with many clo­se-ups, US inde­pen­dent direc­tor Alexandre Rockwell tells the sto­ry of two sib­lings who must defy a life of pover­ty. They draw hope from the power of love and poetry.
