System Crasher

No matter where Benni goes, she is immediately kicked out again: from foster families, shared accommodation, or special education. The wild nine-year-old is what the youth welfare office refers to as a “system crasher”. A difficult and traumatic childhood has left deep wounds on the bright and amiable girl. Benni only has one wish: to return home to her mother – but there is no room for her there, which is just one of the many disappointments that threatens to stifle her. Then Micha, a specialist in juvenile delinquents, is assigned to her as a learning support assistant. Will he be able to succeed where all others have failed? This intense but impressive drama won the prestigious Silver Bear at the Berlin Film Festival and is the German submission to the Oscars.

This action thriller from South-Korea is the most bad-ass film to play at LIFF this year. Sylvester Stallone agrees, because he is going to do a remake. It will be hard to top this original that has already screened at Cannes.
