Recommend this film

Morgane has just turned eighteen. She lives with her father and brother in a typical suburb of Paris. When she’s not in school, Morgane reads russian poetry, calls herself and idiot through endless pages on her blog, wanders through the streets of her painful childhood, regretting that things weren’t easier. She also cuts her arms.
Morgan is angry. She doesn’t accept that her mother is ill. She resents her for not being able to kick her drinking habit. She questions whether her mother actually ever loved her. When her mother calls on the telephone, she is accusatory and blames her for her absence. Morgane turns to her teddy bears and her brother for consolation.
But Morgane successfully passes her A levels. She wants to pull through.
Through the character of Morgane, this film depicts the moment in life when a young woman - caught between adulthood and being a child - charges forward in life, armed with self-protection and carrying her baggage. Simultaneously fragile and intense, everyone connects with this character and her stage in life – scarred by childhood but bravely facing the next chapter in life. It’s a sad and painful moment, but still filled with hope.
