The Girl with a Bracelet @ Jacob Burns Film Center

The girl with a bracelet (La fille au bracelet)
Thriller, Trial – France, Belgium – 2019 – 95′

In French with English Subtitles

Lise (16 years old) is accused of murdering her best friend. As the trial starts, her parents stand right by her side. But once her secret life is revealed in court, the truth becomes indistinguishable.

“I love you” means nothing. Everyone says “I love you”. A young girl called to the witness stand casually drops these disarmingly simple words that are enough to give one chills. That is a recurring feeling throughout this unusually precise courtroom drama, where words and their power are at the center of attention. In this case, the legal proceedings become the ritual of a society putting its own youth on trial. (Locarno Film Festival)
