Un monde

Playground

Two siblings experience primary school as a place of anxiety. Told from the point of view of the children, the film is an oppressive drama between stoical endurance and the courage to change things. 7-year-old Nora and her big brother Abel go to the same school. When Nora sees how Abel is bullied by his schoolmates, she wants to protect him and get their father involved. But Abel makes her keep quiet. Trapped in a conflict of loyalties, Nora tries to find her place, torn between two worlds – that of children and that of adults. (Filmfest Hamburg)
