La révolte des enfants 1992
1h 37m | Drama | Release date: April 22, 1992 (France)

Storyline:

In the 19th century, children — particularly the children of the poor — were considered to be an exploitable resource of docile and cheap labor. Anyone who had the effrontery to steal so much as a portion of a loaf of bread for any reason would (at the very least) go to prison, regardless of their age. However, people of conscience were beginning to protest against this situation. The story takes place in a prison for children where conditions are particularly harsh. The warden is a thick-headed martinet who demands complete compliance with the rules, or the children will be brutally dealt with. The assistant warden is a more modern man, and is appalled by the whole institution, but seeks to begin by reforming it. To that end, he has invited a journalist to come and see the conditions that prevail there, in the hopes that she will rouse public opinion against at least this one form of injustice.

To protect him, his parents decide to leave the city temporarily and the whole family moves to a farm near a rural village. The place is surrounded by the “monte”, a huge humid and dark forest where his father works. Nino feels guilty for what he is going through and for having turned his family’s life upside down. His sister Natalia, aged 16, away from her friends and in her teens, has no mercy on him. Estela, his mother, wants to put Nino “back on the right track” and organizes his Confirmation in the local church. In this rural and superstitious environment, Nino hears about the legend of a mysterious creature called the Almamula, which haunts the “monte” and takes with it anyone who has committed sexually reprehensible acts. The Priest’s sermons show Nino that his sexuality is not acceptable to the eyes of God. The pressure of the approaching Confirmation ceremony weighs on him as his fascination for the Almamula, who he thinks would accept his sins, grows. Little by little, Nino begins to pray to the Almamula, seeing it as a way of “salvation”, and goes in search of the creature, to be taken by it.
