Paul won Best Emerging Actor at the Venice Film Festival 2014 for this performance.

The raw feeling of it

A clean coming-of-age story. The female director applied a very delicate and family-oriented touch. The lead actor is only 16 years old and won a best newcomer award at the Venice Film Festival. Totally convincing.
