Jeune & Jolie is a perplexing and difficult film due to the fact it is mostly rhyme without reason. Usually I would highlight this as a negative, but the way in which Ozon structures the narrative makes it all the more thrilling that we’re not allowed inside the protagonists head. Newcomer Marine Vacth plays Isabelle, a 17 year old girl who, recently having discovered sex, decides to become an escort in Paris. She meets with her clients, takes the money, and continues on in life. Ozon represents this phase with naive voyeurism. We’re allowed to see the events, but not clued in as to why.

This would have dragged many films under, but Isabelle being such the enigma is perhaps »
