Synopsis by Tracie Cooper
Directed by Ray Sandrine, Vivante follows the changes in the life of a young woman after being brutally gang-raped. When 19-year-old Parisian student Claire (Vahina Giocante) is sexually assaulted by four men, she doesn't tell anyone. Rather, she opts to drop out of school and begin a dangerous and decidely more promiscuous existence. Though her newfound habits of incessant clubbing, casual sex, and ominous flirtations with substance abuse leave her brother and father dismayed, Claire shows no signs of slowing down until a sympathetic older woman and a particularly sensitive boyfriend offer the insight needed to pull her out of an increasingly reckless lifestyle. Vicante also stars Samuel Jouy, Francois Berleand, Fanny Cottencon, and Pierre Cassignard.
