Both director Lukas Dhont as its young protagonist, Victor Pad with Girl and a very strong debut feature. Their delicate, unadorned drama revolves around a battle to two fronts. Al is the opposition, perhaps from another angle than expected.
Lara’s own environment has been long accepted as a girl. Certainly her single father (Arieh Worthalter). He is just so full of love and understanding as the father figure in the thematic related Call me by your name (2017).
