THE TOY GUN is a funny dark comedy about a character who looks to show the world the despair his ex-wife has left him in through a poorly thought out gesture, only to find himself worthy to move on thanks to the advice of his reformed ex-con neighbor and his newfound, albeit stolen, cash injection. -Written by Villani Vince/ DOP: Blasco Giurato/ Director: Marco Serafini
After ten years abroad, Catherine (30) returns to Luxembourg, to catch up with her daughter Alba (11), brought up by Catherine’s mother Elisabeth. Alba is cold and distant with this stranger showing up unexpectedly in her life, so is Elisabeth, keen to keep her protégée to herself.
One day, Catherine cannot take it anymore. She kidnaps Alba and takes her to a lake up North. Begins an unsettling journey into the puzzling world of motherly love. DOP: Helene Louvart/ Director: Laura Schroeder Barrage was selected in the Forum Section of Berlinale 2017
