film reviews: Valérie Lobsiger

Documentary about three years in the lives of three pregnant adolescents during their difficult passage into adulthood.

Sandra and Jennifer are just 17 when they become pregnant. While Sandra has plans of a life with her boyfriend, Jennifer sees it as a chance to take on more responsibility and become an adult. Jasmine, meanwhile, has had sex with a boy three years younger and smokes, shows off and has tons of friends. But she is the most disoriented...

The two girls who are prepared for the future are supported by their mothers, and the one who puts her child into foster care is herself a product of the system. Do familiar models subconsciously repeat themselves? What has changed since the development of the pill? Did the girls get pregnant to prove they were adults? One thing is for sure: it's not the baby that makes them grow up, but learning a trade. A good documentary that encourages reflection.
