A strong testimony
Andrea Bescond got deeply involved in this project. She did not only co-write the script and co-direct the movie with her husband, but she also had the leading role. Adapted from her play of the same name, the story is based on her own experience. As a victim of child abuse, she succeeds in making the plot believable. Thanks to her humor and her energy, it never falls into melodrama. We understand that this trauma left a permanent mark on her mind and that it took years to tidy things up. Dance and psychotherapy helped her release her pain. Even if I was a bit disturbed by the back and forth between past and present, reality and fantasy, I found the movie interesting. Especially because it sounds genuine. Moreover, it shows that child abusers can look like anybody. Most of them are indeed acquaintances or relatives.
Actress Andréa Bescond makes stunning debut
Initially, the expressive dance and small budgeted production of 'Little Tickles' made me hesitate. But the longer I watched, the more emotional I became. By the end, it was as if I'd been the one dancing.
Actress Andréa Bescond is superb. Absolutely our loss that she's taken so long to make her debut.
Extra kudos to the screenplay. The dialogue worked, and the shuffling between timelines was easy to track.
