    Grandir

    SYNOPSIS:

    GRANDIR which in French means TO GROW, introduces the audience to a house that becomes the antithesis of common film orphanages.

    In this warm space, the children grow as free and responsible beings and little by little to reconcile with their difficult past. Through this documentary, director Etienne Moine and Bernard Josse show that with few resources, it is possible to grow up with respect and love.

    "The house where love can heal"

    "The film is painful and touching at the same time. With the same love that the filmmakers filmed the children, they approach their parents and allow us to see people who have also been injured and deserve another chance. Behind the abuse, neglect, abandonment, there are circumstances that we learn to see with empathy and without judgment. If you have to, only reproach in the film-and only at moments-a tone perhaps a little redemptive, maybe a few minutes more and they can lead us away from that space instead of staying there. But this is not important. I prefer to celebrate that it was the film, which has given me this beautiful confirmation: "Of course it can be cured with love." Now I understand even better what my friend talks about, a love that does not possess, it does not seek to dominate, a love that stands for the child, freedom, integrity and dignity."

    "Love comes almost immediately with the simplicity of the reality of the women, who with deep humanity give attention to the children who before your eyes slowly build the relationship with the adult. Testimonies loaded with palpable emotion presented to different players of the story, children, returning to the homes and parents, with a different way of seeing life. People will be identified with these beings that demonstrate that it is possible, with the support of all and selfishness aside, cured with the power of love."

    "The story told by "Grandir" is straightforward and touching. No photographic or technical fuss, Josse and Moine air a poetic documentary: children laughing or playing, making their own decisions ... some soft music and some electrifying landscapes (for their beauty) are sufficient to convey the peace that exists in the home where 15 children have found refuge and hope. 'Grandir' shows a sad reality, no doubt, but not showing a miserable situation, and that is its great achievement. On the contrary after seeing the documentary something like hope is installed in the viewer."

    "The testimony of a man who talks about his childhood and his present with innocence, with pride and dignity, this being the harbinger of things to see later. Fixed plans long enough to allow us to discover in the eyes of the children what its life has been, a camera that slowly shows detail of a girl who insists on tying her shoes by herself, a camera discreetly presents some children sitting at their table, they organize and have breakfast handling knives and forks of adults in the company of someone who gives importance to each of their movements and decisions, a camera that sees a girl happily reunited with her mother and teaches her mother how to play with her ball. Like these images there are many but these are the ones that now come to mind.”
