The melodramatic title won’t do it any favours, as Katell Quillévéré’s debut feature is a quiet, sensitive study of a 14-year-old girl beset by adolescent confusion.
Home from boarding school, Anna (newcomer Clara Augarde in a beautifully gauged performance) finds her parents have split up, her beloved grandfather is dying and she is herself attracted to a good-looking choirboy.
Pulled every which way by her residual faith, her budding sexuality and the competing demands of her family, Anna tries to work out who she is – and who she wants to be – in the verdant Breton countryside.
