Movie Info

Sabine (Louise Szpindel) is a high-school athlete. "I live to run," she tells her friends, and it appears to be true. She's maniacally devoted to running track, despite the benign disinterest of her mother (Anne Coesens). Training for a big meet, Sabine is determined, not just to run fast, but to be the fastest runner in the world. She resents the fact that her coach, Gelewski (Jean-François Stévenin of The Man on the Train), concerned about her development as an athlete, doesn't want her to run

In this dazzling and minimalist drama, the director Ursula Meier has created an unforgettable portrait of a young woman desperate to prove she's as good as any man.

Unlike an American, this Swiss girl is worried that her breasts are too big and her thighs are too small. And as for boys - well, she's mostly interested in outrunning them.
