Film Details


L'enfant D'en Haut
France, Switzerland | 2012 | Ursula Meier


Switzerland’s official entry for this year’s foreign film Oscar is one of the most acclaimed movies of 2012, with an overall rating of 81 (out of 100). It’s a haunting “up-mountain, down-mountain” drama about a 12-year-old boy who steals from wealthy guests at an Alpine ski resort in order to support his desperate, down-and-out older sister (Léa Seydoux of Farewell, My Queen ) who lives in a decrepit apartment in the valley below. With Gillian Anderson. From the director of Home; beautifully lensed by Claire Denis’ regular cinematographer Agnès Godard.

97 min. 35mm. French with subtitles. Cleveland premiere.
