Synopsis

THE LINE

After a violent argument with her mother, Margaret, 35 years old and with a long history of inflicting and suffering from violence, is subject to a strict restraining order before her trial: she’s no longer allowed to make contact with her mother or approach within 100 meters of the family home for 3 months. But this separation only exacerbates her desire to be closer to her family and so she returns every day to this invisible and impassable frontier.

“[An] engrossing, unnerving but unexpectedly sympathetic drama of family dysfunction.”
–Peter Bradshaw, Guardian

Reviews

“An arresting story of familial disharmony that’s distinctive both visually and thematically.”
–Anna Smith, Deadline

“Downright radical… Belgian actor-singer-playwright Blanchoud  is the reason this project proves so impactful.”
–Peter Debruge, Variety
