ZERO FUCKS GIVEN / RIEN À FOUTRE
BELGIUM, FRANCE | 2021 | COLOR | DCP | 112’ | FRENCH, ENGLISH
Cassandra works as an air-hostess at a low cost airline. She doesn’t try much, she’s only interested in the miniature vodkas, techno-wannabe music at the clubs of her destinations and tinder. She’d wish to work for a better company – though she knows she’s not qualified. But there are some loose ends in her family’s history which her temporary layoff will force her to face. Adele Exarchopoulos is still a first class wild star who, thanks to her incredible naturalness, makes anyone in the same frame disappear. She is the star of this a filmic chronicle of the insufferable tediousness of lifeless adolescence which collides with personal loss and is asked to adapt. Modern, expressive and moving. I.D.
