Dir. Nora Fingscheidt | Germany | 2019 | 125m
German with English subtitles
Meet Benni a wayward nine-year-old who the ‘system’ has almost given up on. She Is expelled from one foster home to the next for her wild and uncontrollable behaviour, but deep down there lies a deep vulnerability. Asking some pointed questions about the care system, this compelling drama features a ferocious lead performance from tomboyish young actress Helena Zengel, a whirlwind of dayglo pink clothing and blond hair who simply explodes off the screen.
‘There are times, when Zengel is performing with other children, especially younger children, when you get the strange sense that this isn’t acting – it is actually happening.’
PETER BRADSHAW, THE GUARDIAN
‘Crafted with heaps of heart, well worth seeking out.’
MILLICENT THOMAS, LITTLE WHITE LIES
