Nanouk Leopold / NL, BE, DEUZE, 2018 / 94 min.
Nanouk Leopold’s latest film premiered at the Berlin Film Festival, where the critics praised the performance of young debut actor Bas Keizer. Leopold’s raw drama focuses on Cobain, who runs away from his new foster home because he’s worried about his mother Mia, who is nearing the end of her pregnancy and is living rough in Rotterdam.
Cobain thinks it is high time that Mia found help for herself and their baby, but then they get into a terrible row. Cobain leaves and finds a place to stay with Wickmayer, Mia’s ex who pimps a couple of girls. When Mia tries to get in touch with Cobain again, Wickmayer tells her to go.
