Lola / Lola vers la mer

International Feature Film Competition

Being free and independent is teenager Lola’s life motto. Lola’s opinions, however, clash with the yokel, conservative nature of her father, for whom the idea of traditional family happiness is sacred. Reality is more complicated, though. The moment Lola stands up for herself, she stops existing in her father’s eyes. The worlds of both protagonists intersect upon the news of the death of their beloved wife and mother, and the task to fulfill her last wish together. Will they manage to rebuild their relationship, or will the new situation make no impact? Set off on a quest for forgiveness in this emotion-packed road movie by Belgian director Laurent Micheli. The heroine’s emotional transformation was remarkably portrayed by Mya Bollaers, a rising actress who has been nominated for several European awards for her performance and won the prestigious Magritte Award for Best Actress.
