2007 / 95’

Nicolas is fourteen, a small-town boy living with his elderly foster parents. By chance he finds a copy of Wedekind’s Spring’s Awakening with a postcard from Belle-Ile-en-Mer. He packs his bags and heads for the open road. Just as accidentally he meets Charly, a young prostitute who is hardly much older than him. She brings him to her home, an abandoned caravan in the middle of nowhere. This strong-minded young woman takes the adolescent - whose standard answer to any of her questions is “Sais pas” [i.e. “Dunno”] - into her hands. What makes this simple coming-of-age story exceptional is its consistent, uncompromising, direct, pure style and its unpretentious, brilliant acting.
