      Rebecca Harrison Sight & Sound A confident and startling debut, Bescond and Métayer's film will make you laugh and cry. It is a compelling and necessary story in the era of #MeToo, and one that will no doubt be important to survivors of abuse as well as film lovers. Oct 2, 2019 Full Review Jessica Kiang Variety This spiky, occasionally soapy but ultimately deeply moving film draws power from its raggedness, making us uncomfortable even beyond the disturbing events it recounts, because its truths refuse to be tidy. Jul 10, 2018 Full Review Jon Frosch Hollywood Reporter A sometimes clumsy, but finally fierce and winning take on a tough topic. May 16, 2018 Full Review Lisa Nesselson France24 It is told with verve and bottomless creativity. Nov 10, 2018 Full Review Jon-Carlos Evans Black Nerd Problems By the third act, the balance gives, pulling the film into the realm of television soap opera. Jun 14, 2018 Full Review Àngel Quintana Caimán Cuadernos de Cine A tense comedy that progresses progressively towards emptiness. [Full review in Spanish] May 15, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Little Tickles is an important film that shows the power childhood sexual abuse has over the victims that often continues long after the events have stopped. Based on Andréa Bescond's prize-winning autobiographical stage play, Little Tickles, effectivrly uses humor, flashbacks, and insertion of current day characters set in the midst of the flashback sequences, think Ghost of Christmas Past and Scrooge, to present the devestation and lifelong shaping and control of Lise abuse so often has with Children. While presented with utmost care and sensitivity, the scenes where the abuse occurs convey the soulless nature that is sexual abuse of a child, and perhaps most importantly depicts the grooming process of both parents and victims.
