The camera quietly winds through the corridors of a prison to make its way to a toddler walking. Prisons and Kids are a chocking combination. In Lion's Den, Paolo Trapero shows the daily life of women's prison, where the prisoners are also mothers. The contrast between pregnant women/child care and walls/bars brings an original view.
The film elegantly combines two levels: a general and social vision of the living conditions in a prison on one hand. And on the other hand, it shows a more intimate side about maternity and feminity in such context. Lion's Den does that through the story of Julia, a beautiful young pregnant woman played by Elli Medeiros.
Trapero achieve to being a new perspective on a classic "prison film" by exploring a maternal and feminine touch.
