Raging Rose

OT: Crache Coeur

Julia Kowalski // France, Poland, 2015
Fiction Feature // FF2015



Jozef, a man in his 50s, has moved from Poland to Nantes in France to work. But the job isn’t the only reason he’s here: he’s looking for his son Roman, whom he left here 15 years previously. Jozef asks Rose, the teenage daughter of his employer, who goes to the same school as Roman, for help. She should give the boy a letter. But outsider Rose falls head over heels for Roman and uses the information Josef gives her for her own purposes. A gruelling triangular story unfolds. Raging Rose is a dense, psychological coming-of-age film, marked by excellent performances from the lead actors.


JULIA KOWALSKI (*1979) was born in France of Polish parents. Her short film Musique de chambre (2012) was shown at numerous festivals. Raging Rose is her debut feature film, that had its premiere in the Acid series at Cannes.
