Movie Info

In this straightforward drama, Marie (Emmanuelle Beart) is a prisoner at the time she sees a performance by a theatrical troupe. After the show, she goes up to speak to one of the players, and this leads (without her knowledge) to her being chosen to participate in a special program. It seems that the troupe is a special halfway house for "reformable" prisoners, and Marie is to be paroled to them. Streetwise and tough, the former prostitute and addict Marie at first resists this high-minded program, but eventually discovers that it works for her. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Children of Chaos (Les Enfants du Desordre)


Luminous Emanuelle Beart takes on the decidedly unglamorous role of a young single mom junkie prostitute, interns in one of her best performances. She finds at first refuge and later her path to redemption at what amounts to a theatrical halfway house for former inmates, seeing her own problems for the first time reflected in the parts she plays. Her fellow actors all have their own history of problems as well, providing a constant challenge for the gruff, exasperated director trying to bring out the best in them. The scene where she hits rock-bottom is heartbreaking stuff..
