SpartacusAndCassandra_01

Spartacus and Cassandra used to be children like the others, back in Romania. But everything changed at their arrival in France: here, they are foreigners that social services can’t help, and they have to be responsible for their alcoholic father and mentally unstable mother. When Camille, a 21-year-old trapeze artist, offers to adopt them, they face an impossible choice: to stay with their parents and live on the streets, or to leave them for a better future.

Dealing with a highly polemical issue, Spartacus and Cassandra subtly breaks the stereotypes associated with Roma immigration. Ioanis Nuguet’s empathic camera captures the extraordinary life of these two siblings deprived of their childhood; The result is a heartrending first film, both aching and bright.
