Baby Bump

11-year-old Mickey House is no longer a child. But who is he? He doesn’t know. He’s friendless. He doesn’t understand his mother. He hates what’s happening to his body. Reality and imagination come together in a toxic mix. Events escalate to extremes… at home and at school. Mickey has to find the strength within him to put a stop to what’s begun. Where will his encounter with his own maturing body take him?

    One of the more artful and visceral films about puberty I have seen. There isn't much to compare it to but it reminds me of Harmony Korine soaking frames of Amélie in a pink bucket filled with cum and urine.

    #BabyBump cuenta con un vertiginoso ritmo muy ad hoc con el despertar sexual de un niño físicamente acomplejado. Las metáforas, los temores explícitos, las vocecitas en la cabeza. si eres "occidental", es inevitable identificarse, enojarse, sufrir y demás cosas con esta peli. pic.twitter.com/L5ZjGVxdrs
