by Lukas Dhont Gala Premieres

Ever since they can remember, Léo and Rémi have been inseparable friends. Throughout the summer, the two 13-year-olds roam through fields and meadows, chase each other on their bikes along country roads, and spend the night together. But with the start of the new school year, their intimate friendship is strained – the natural physical closeness of the two boys has not gone unnoticed by their classmates. A fatal event soon turns Léo and Rémi's lives completely upside down. Belgian director Lukas Dhont tells with extraordinary tenderness the heart-breaking story of a youthful friendship at a crossroads. Dhont, who won the Golden Eye at ZFF 2018 with his debut feature GIRL, was awarded the Grand Jury Prize at Cannes this year.
