Synopsis

Within the large wooded grounds of the pedagogical medical institute La Pépinière, the story of a whimsical and musical journey in the teen years, learning how to blow a fuse in a suitable way.

Review

The opening scene with fantastic night sky, as it turns out, is a set of artificial blue backgrounds and lighting. The lyrical background music strangely loosed turns out to be audio sound distorted as the battery is discharged. The opening scene of the film, which reveals the artificiality by taking off the first impression of beautiful and natural image and sound, is a symbolical scene that shows the theme of this film. The film follows the students trying to overcome disabilities and control anger through various activities such as poetry, music, and films in the pedagogical medical institute 'La Pépinière' in France. The camera maintains an attitude of direct cinema that does not explain the characters and situations or interfere in them. The teachers and students seem to communicate closely with the group activities appropriate for each student, but the conflicts between them cannot be solved by the institute system. The works by the students following the violent conflicts make an ambiguity and blur the boundaries with the documentary that shoots them. [MAENG Soojin]
