THE DEFLOWERING OF EVA VAN END
[De Ontmaagding van Eva van End]
Eva van End is a 15-year-old loser, ignored by her dysfunctional family and laughed at by the kids in school. But things change after Veit, a strapping German exchange student, joins the family. With his Nordic good looks and African charity work, Veit becomes the new school heartthrob, boosting Eva's own popularity. But in the van End household, Veit's charisma has an unexpected and unsettling effect, as the entire family has its world turned upside down by his powerful, and impossible to follow, example. A slyly veiled homage to Pasolini's TEOREMA, this quirky, witty coming-of-age story also recalls Todd Solondz's WELCOME TO THE DOLLHOUSE. Official Selection 2012 Toronto Film Festival; 2013 Rotterdam, Karlovy Vary Film Festivals.
