Jules visits his father, Denis, an unpredictable old punk, to give him an enigmatic little box. After a ten-year silence, their reunion is orchestrated around a well-watered spaghetti. But Denis wants to dictate the rules of the game and the tension mounts, revealing the reasons for this closed-door meeting that soon turns into a nightmare. Carried by the songs of The Cure, among the puddles of urine and the debris of the television, Jules will put the final touch to this crescendo of violence which will reveal her sometimes victim, sometimes executioner.
Between cruelty and nostalgia, Les pénitences resurrects the childhood of two girls under the control of a dangerous adult with arbitrary laws. This feverishly written thriller, where disturbing detail and imminent threat pulsate in the lavender glow of VHS tapes, shows the mental, emotional and sexual ramifications of abusive relationships and poverty.
