Love Like Poison
Un poison violent | Katell Quillévéré, 2010
France | French | 92 minutes

This award-winning debut from young French director, Katell Quillévéré, is a true discovery, taking its title taken from a Serge Gainsbourg song. Fourteen-year-old Anna comes home from Catholic boarding school to family turmoil and becomes caught between her own religious belief and sexual stirrings awakened by Pierre. After meeting this free-spirited boy who cares little about God, her preparations for her confirmation are thrown into doubt by her budding feelings of desire.

Winner of the Jean Vigo Award.
