Set Me Free is Pool’s most autobiographical and emotional film. It seems as though Pool arrived at a resolution after several works focusing on the tension between the self and the world. It arouses our sympathy for a thirteen-year-old girl facing the challenges of becoming a woman. Here we see Léa Pool’s own past suffering from loss and lack. She is now able to contemplate past agonies through even playful cinematic devices.
 Hanna’s Jewish father is a man without a country, an unknown poet whose soul is tormented. It is her mother, an overworked laborer, who is in charge of the family. Hanna has just started menstruating, but no one has explained to her what it is. She must navigate the world by herself. When she falls in love with Nana, the main character in Jean-Luc Godard’s Vivre Sa Vie at the theatre, she adopts for herself Nana’s famous line: “I am responsible for...” It also serves as her declaration of independence. Her beloved brother and friend Laura are only people to whom sensitive Hanna can turn. Together, the three set off to explore the obscure world of sexual identity.
