Benni is a ‘system crasher’, a nine year old whose violent and uncontrolled behaviour results in her absconding or being moved from children’s home to foster parent over and over, taxing the diligent German Social Services. A superb central performance by Helena Zengel who manages to convey the traumatised Benni’s vulnerability in the midst of her anger and aggression.
