Le Monde De Ludovic 1993
De wereld van Ludovic (original title)
1h 31min | Drama | TV Movie 2 February 1993
Ludovic, a young boy neglected by his artsy parents, falls in love with Sophie, the daughter of a piano teacher. They meet in secret places in the city. Not long after Sophie’s father finds them naked together in her room, Ludovic is sent away to spend time with his grandparents. Sophie runs away from home to join him, and they hide along the seashore and in abandoned buildings. After they are found, their parents try to keep them separate, but they both fall into deep depressions.
This is a beautiful and strange love story between two twelve years old.
It is strange because the children are not typical characters a boy Ludovic pretty much left to himself all the time with barely any parental supervision and love. He falls for a girl at his school who is in a loving family where the dad is almost never home either.
Both children have emotional scars and just fall in love with one another. I don’t want to give away the twists but it is well worth seeing since it helps understand mental health issues and scars are not only for adults.
It is an emotional drama well worth seeing but
There is some unclear stuff in the plot that is left pretty much to interpretation and is the reason I only give it an 8.
