Paul is a 12 years old boy who likes to roam the forest and observe nature. One day Gloria, a schizophrenic teenage, arrives. Paul falls in love immediately.

There is an awkward love between the two children. Because Paul thinks that Gloria is in danger, he helps her escape. This is the beginning of a long journey that will take the two children to the heart of madness.

Directed and written by Fabrice du Welz. Welz also wrote and directed Alléluia (based on the Lonely Hearts Killers) and Calvaire.

Perfect for a Valentine's Day horror binge, Welz's films focus on the horror of romantic love in various forms-this time adolescent love.

Currently streaming on Shudder.

This is a beautiful, sad film that captures something very true about adolescence.

Love du Welz in general, really underrated filmmaker.
