Pls help me remember this french film about a poor girl...
April 14, 2013 2:44 PM   Subscribe

I rented this film on VHS in 1999. It is about a younger french girl, living with her mother in a trailer park. Mother is a drunk, they are poor, she tries to get a job at a food stand at one point (??) There is love interest and conflict and some kind of crisis. I loved this movie and have thought about it often since I saw it but I am afraid that my memories may have started overwriting my recollections. She is a little bit of a feral child, medium length brown hair, very striking. Please help!

Best answer: Their 2005 film L'enfant is just as amazing, if you like their work, but I wouldn't read anything about it online before watching.

No problem. You're in for a treat with their other movies, for sure. And you might like this AskMe from 2009:

What foreign film titles are there that involve remarkably realistic characters -and- settings as part of the plot and use a contemporary setting?

Watch all their films, you won't regret it.
