What happens when a divorcing couple can’t see the impact of their acrimony on their child ?
Twelve-year-old Nina is a talented competitive swimmer but her parents are too busy arguing to support her. Petra Fornayova and Robert Roth are excellent as the distracted parents, but it’s Bibiana Novakova as Nina who steals this one.
NINA, directed by Slovak filmmaker Juraj Lehotsky is in the Contemporary World Cinema section of TIFF.
