(Je suis un soldat)

France 2015
In French / English subtitles
97 min
For audicences age 16 and above


I Am A Soldier, a debut feature film presented by French director Laurent Larivière -- tells the story of a harsh battle: that of Sandrine (Louise Bourgoin), a young woman caught up in the downward spiral of unemployment who can't get out of it, despite her best efforts, and finds herself forced, at the age of thirty, to go back to living with her mother, carrying the weight of her whole life on her shoulders in a few bags. -- With the way it matches different motifs, subtly and delicately, and shows the state of mind of the heroine and her relationships with those around her in all their complexity, I Am A Soldier is without a doubt a very clever and skilful film.
