La tête haute
When Malony (Rod Paradot) is abandoned by his mother at age six it marks the start of a long row of foster homes. At fifteen, he is a juvenile delinquent who is quick to violence when he feels insecure or threatened. However, judge Florence Blaque (Catherine Deneuve) and assistant Yann (Benoît Magimel) are not about to give up hope. Maria Domellöf-Wik writes in Göteborgs-posten: “The movie favorably takes it’s time to show the mental healing. A couple of strong scenes is the reward for waiting. Rod Paradot is also amazing as Malony, truly convincing at all times”.
