Two love-struck teens grow up fast in the wake of an unexpected pregnancy, in this gently realistic debut feature from Belgian director Guillaume Senez.
Maxime and Mélanie are in love. Together, they clumsily explore their sexuality with fiery curiosity until the day Mélanie realizes she’s pregnant. At first Maxime takes the news badly, but then he gets used to the idea of becoming a father. He convinces Melanie to keep the baby. So it’s been decided – Maxime and Mélanie, all of fifteen years old, will become parents.
Being young is not all about having fun. Keeper reminds us that the burden of adult decisions does not fall to adults alone.
