They F*** You Up
A story for everyone who wonders how to deal with family and with life itself.
'They fuck you up, your mum and dad. They may not mean to but they do. They fill you with the faults they had and add some extra, just for you.' This beginning of the poem by Philip Larkin touches the core questions in the film. Filmmaker Klaartje Quirijns turns the camera on herself to explore the powerful dynamics of her own family relationships and the way they have shaped her life. It is a story for everyone who wonders how to deal with family and with life itself.
