Our Little Differences / Sylvie Michel

The dismantlement of the traditional nuclear family model in the western world, along with issues of culture, immigration and philosophy of life emerge in Sylvie Michel’s debut film. The clash between the renowned doctor Sebastian, a German divorcee, and his housemaid Yana, a woman from Bulgaria, when his teenage son and her adult daughter disappear, destroys their seeming balance. Silence and fear balanced diversity at all possible levels – in terms of culture, class and values. The disappearance of the children, against a well-polished background, will join two worlds that coexisted without touching, moving in parallel, never crossing paths. The director builds a psychological drama, which surprises with its immediacy, its straightforward baring of the characters and its subtle sense of humor.
