Plumbing the depths

One of the problems of being in high school is that it’s hard to believe it will ever really end. You feel like you will be stuck there forever. That feeling of helplessness and the anger it breeds are captured very realistically in Sophie Artus’s film Valley, which tells the story of three teenagers who bond to help each other through the toughest of times.

But Valley is a difficult film because its three protagonists, particularly the two boys, are exposed to so much violence, loss and cruelty, and the adults in their lives do little or nothing to help.
