With: Victor Polster, Arieh Worthalter, Katelijne Damen, a.o.

In the presence of: Lukas Dhont, Arieh Worthalter, Victor Polster

"From its very first moments, the beautifully controlled and artful 'Girl' - the feature debut of Lukas Dhont - grips and takes hold. This deeply emphatic portrayal of a trans teen has an expressive camera that observes and listens, rather than forces you to succumb to emotions. The trajectory of the story's protagonist, Lara, who is determined to become a ballet dancer despite feeling trapped in a body she doesn't recognize, sounds a little exploitative on paper, but the end result is quite the opposite. Sensitively rendered cinema with a capital C, 'Girl' features a lovely naturalism and an attention to detail so delicately constructed characters feel like full flesh and blood." (The Playlist)
