Kiss and Cry

The blades are not exactly full of glory in Kiss and Cry, an intriguing look at the life of a young figure skater trying — but clearly not trying hard enough — to become a champion.Shot and scripted as a fictional film while feeling very much like a documentary, this modest first feature from Lila Pinell and Chloe Mahieu offers up a tender portrait of a tough world, where budding adolescents come clashing up against the strict regimen of professional athletics. Premiering in the Cannes ACID sidebar, the ultra low-budget effort has already been acquired for French distribution and could continue on to other festivals, with a shot at boutique pickups in Europe and elsewhere.
