Slalom

Rating: R21 (Sexual Scenes 性相关画面)

Synopsis

Slalom follows Lyz, a 15-year-old competitive skier who falls prey to the sexual advances of her coach. Throughout the film, the emotionally isolated Lyz hurtles down the physical slopes and an internal whirlwind of pleasure and pain, as she struggles to understand her own identity while being Fred’s student, lover and victim. Relying less on script than on body language, Charlène Favier effectively communicates the psychological trauma experienced by Lyz. Chilling and disconcerting, Slalom makes for an essential watch in the #MeToo era, particularly following the accounts of abuse emerging from the sports world.
