LITTLE TICKLES / LES CHATOUILLES (N/C 18+)

 

Dancer Andréa Bescond co-directs (with Eric Métayer) and stars in a hopeful film based on her autobiographical play about childhood sexual abuse. The sweet-natured, dance-mad young girl Odette (Cyrille Mairesse) was groomed from an early age by her parents’ close friend Gilbert (Pierre Deladonchamps ) and repeatedly molested, often in her own home under the eyes of her parents (Karin Viard and Clovis Cornillac) employing the pretext of him giving her the “little tickles” of the title. Once she has grown up, she opens up and dedicates herself fully to her career as a dancer, simultaneously embracing life and letting go of her anger.
