Directed by: GUILLAUME SENEZ
Starring: Kacey Mottet-Klein, Catherine Salée, Galatéa Bellugi, Sam Louwyck
Brimming with novice talent, first-time filmmaker Guillaume Senez and his young, rapidly rising star Kacey Mottet-Klein (Sister, AF FFF13) both impress as they deliver this remarkable drama of two teenagers facing one of life’s biggest decisions.

At once lustful, loving, industrious, lazy, rebellious and vulnerable, Maxime (Mottet-Klein) embodies all the contradictions one would expect from a 15-year-old promising soccer star. When his girlfriend Mélanie (enigmatic newcomer Galatéa Bellugi) discovers she is pregnant, Maxime’s professional ambitions are thwarted. Despite this, his strong feelings and moral compass take charge as the two embark on a decision-making process laden with all the dilemmas and emotions usually reserved for adult life. Once their parents are brought into the equation, the gravity of the situation gathers force.

Championed for its wise, strongly observational and non judgemental approach, Keeper is a triumph of understated story-telling. This film delivers an honest portrayal of the volatile teenage psyche when faced with life decisions at such a young age.
