Paul is a 12 year old boy who lives with his mother, a nurse working at a mental institution in the middle of a forest. While visiting his mother at the clinic, Paul crosses paths with Gloria, a schizophrenic teenager, and falls in love with her to the point that he decides to help her escape at all costs after she commits a crime. The pair embarks on a trip across the Ardennes woods which will reveal the extent of Gloria’s dangerous madness and Paul’s devotion to her.

Adoration is the epic story of two young children, who accomplish what can have been a teenage dream of freedom and love for all of us. The actor Thomas Gioria is stunning in his portrayal of a saintly figure, akin to Dostoevsky’s Idiot. Filled with compassion and sweetness, he is strong in his great fragility. Fantine Harduin, who was discovered in Michael Haneke’s latest film Happy End, pulls off the difficult acting task of alternating terribly powerful emotional states.
