Adoration (Fabrice du Welz)

Adoration

Fabrice du Welz

In the mental institution where his mother works as a nurse, a wide-eyed 12-year-old boy falls in love with a schizophrenic teen. Their escape into the forests of the Ardennes is the beginning of an extraordinary journey that could only have been dreamed up by Fabrice du Welz. A strong cast of supporting actors and two magical performances from two child actors who are no strangers to the acting profession: one featured in Michael Haneke’s Happy End, the other in the oppressive, award-winning Custody.
