System Crasher(EUFF 2020)
Benni is small, but dangerous. Whichever school she is signed up to, she is nearly immediately expelled, a wild nine-year-old the local child protection services dubbed a “system crasher”. And she is certainly not looking to change her ways, because Benni has just one single goal: to be back at home with her mommy! But even Mama Bianca is scared of her own daughter, so the welfare officer makes one last gamble by hiring the anger-management trainer Micha as Benni’s school escort. Will Micha be able to succeed where all others failed? While being acutely authentic, first-time director Nora Fingscheidt transcends the traits of a psychological study and delivers something vibrant, visceral and emotional, bolstered by the cast’s unforgettable performances.
