Synopsis

This is an uncompromising and unforgettable film. There is not even a hint of the feel-good factor, yet when you emerge from the cinema you will feel good that you are where you are and not where Lilya is.

Moodysson has a knack for showing the world through the eyes of children. The world of Lilya is one of exploitation, betrayal and dashed hopes. Her innocence and trust are stolen and when even the merest glimpse of her dreams comes into view, a horrible destiny crushes her back down.

Akinshina gives an astonishing performance and is one that you really should not miss. Stunning.
