Dalva (English Subtitles)
Dalva begins to understand that the love she shared with her father was not what she thought. She will have to learn to be a child again.
The stunning, shocking directorial debut of Emmanuelle Nicot ‘finds room for humour and laughter, for pathos and catharsis. Even as we follow this tightly wound-up girl who fears ever letting her guard down, Nicot encourages us to look at her not with pity but with grace. It’s an astounding feat of filmmaking, particularly for the way it avoids facile moralistic or didactic approaches to telling Dalva’s story.’—Manuel Betancourt, Variety
