Towards tenderness

  • France
  • Belgium
Audio Tracks 

Alice Diop portrays the daily lives of four young people from Seine-Saint-Denis. The urban environment, representative of a social injunction to virility, contrasts with their voices and their shy confidences about their romantic relationships. The film gradually moves from a disillusioned and cynical observation to the certainty that there is a path towards tenderness.
