French director Claude Miller directs a great film about growing up when it is hard to do so.
7 August 2007 | by (FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

Claude Miller likes to portray unhappy people as he believes that nothing happens to happy people. His films have won him both critical as well as Box Office success. L'Effrontee shows how hard it is to live as a neglected child with desires and aspirations. Claude Miller's poetic mis- en-scene imparted divine exquisiteness to a pure tale of uncertainty. Charlotte experiences the passage from childhood to adolescence in a difficult manner. Miller has created one of the best coming of age film in years. Things become tough for Charlotte when she is introduced to an alien world of music. She reminds us of our childhood dreams and frustrations. Miller has always championed the cause of young characters in his films portraying complex personal relationships. L'Effrontee is similar to his earlier film "La meilleure facon de marcher" as he has aimed to portray joys and sorrows experienced by adolescents in their formative years. As a cinéaste who learned his métier from Truffaut, Claude Miller will continue to create stories of troubled childhoods.
