In a kitchen, a mother and a child struggle to establish dialogue. As adolescence approaches, questions about one’s gender identity collide with the indifference that prevails within the household.

  1. The English title would be “Chapped Lips.”
    Not sure why, maybe because chapstick is used by all genders and orientations and identities? I think rather it is a wound on an intimate part of one’s being.

    Great and beautiful movie, but sadly kids are not just ignored for things as important as gender identity or expression. It is all too often for everything and anything. Even the most trivial things matter when you are a kid. Sometimes parents are too absorbed by their own stuff and forget they have a family to build up. Sometimes even, working fathers and mothers have their own separate lives and don’t really function as a parent pair either.
