Love-Moi Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

In this vivid drama, based on the real-life experiences of the director, who was a counselor for such youths, troubled juvenile offenders in Quebec tell him about their harsh lives and their hopes for the future. Though perhaps one or two will manage to live into their thirties, most are clearly doomed by their lives of prostitution, violence and drugs. Despite the unflinching realism of the kids' stories, their parts are played by actors. One particularly moving story is that of a girl whose family placed her in a juvenile detention facility to get her away from her mother's boyfriend, who had raped her. In a dejected fashion she explains the situation this way: "I'm doing his (her rapist's) time instead of him." ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
