A Taste of Ink
(Compte tes Blessures)

France 2016

In French with English subtitles

80 min

For audiences aged 12 and above

Vincent is a young body piercer who expresses himself through his tattoos and by screaming in a hardcore metal band. His frustrations have continued to build since his mother passed away: he's fed up with his job, fights during gigs, and lives in the dead-end suburbs with his poor father, with whom he has a tense relationship. In the midst of this mayhem he starts developing an attraction for his new stepmother, a problematic situation that softens his aggression but threatens to create further discord.

»A Taste of Ink is an impressive and well-cast debut film featuring a solid post-punk soundtrack. It has created a much-deserved buzz at various film festivals, including a nomination for Best International Feature Film at the Zurich Film Festival. It won the 2014 Prix Junior Screenplay Grand Jury Prize and was selected for Cannes Festival's 2015 Cinefondation Atelier, a co-production forum for up-and-coming talent.
