LA PIEUVRE (THE OCTOPUS)

Laetitia Carton
France 2009 89 min.

LpLaetitia Carton, the director, grew up with the fear of disease. Her family has got to learn to grow up and live with Huntington's, a genetic neurodegenerative disease that little by little destroys all mental faculties. It's a disease that can come on at any age before it takes you away. Now there's a test to know whether or not she has the gene. Laetitia has got one chance out of two.
