ADORATION

de Fabrice du Welz

Synopsis

Paul lives with his mother in a mental institution, where she works as a nurse. He spends his days playing in the forest and taking care of wounded birds. One day he meets Gloria, a young patient who has just arrived at the hospital, and decides to run away with her. Fabrice du Welz returns to the Ardennes woods, where he filmed Calvaire and Alleluia, to recount a teen odyssey of freedom, love and insanity, where emotions are so pure that they hurt.
