A French drama about childhood sexual abuse and its toxic consequences, ‘Little Tickles’ (‘Les Chatouilles’) is the kind of mess of a movie that wins you over with its sincerity and passion, as well as its bold bursts of humor. It is an ode to the restorative powers of the arts, and one that will no doubt be important to survivors of abuse as well as film lovers.
• THE MOVIE:
Odette is eight years old. She likes dancing and drawing, too.�Why would she be wary of a friend of her parents who asks her to “play tickles” with him?� As an adult, Odette dances out her anger, finds her voice and embraces life. – Synopsis
“A space has finally opened up for films like “Little Tickles” and if the rising tide of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements has taught us only one thing, it’s that when the victims of abuse choose to tell their stories, it is our obligation, as part of the society that failed them, to listen.” – Variety
