If you like subtitles or understand french this could be a movie for you. I was overly impressed at the talent of all the actors and actress especially the little boy. They all did an outstanding performance of an abusive relationship and how it slowly develops to the worse fear of an abusive relationship. Although it follows the usually stigma of the husband being the abuser and the women and child being the victim the movie is done very well and can actually move you and make you sense what they are going though. A well worth foreign french film to watch.

Realistically told story of a family splitting at the seams after a mother and her two children walk away from a violent situation which grows ever more tense after a custody hearing with an unwelcome result, leading towards an explosive ending all too real and common. I caution parents to watch this with their children and have The Talk about putting Safety Precautions into place should you know anyone or BE someone in this immediate situation.

Family drama that shows the ugliness of domestic abuse. Acting was really natural and story had predictable outcome.
