L'EFFRONTEE (DIDIER BECU)
19 October 2003 | by (Gent, Belgium) – See all my reviews

Most of the times the smallest things in life are the greatest and in cinema that's not any different. It's been a long long time since I saw such a supertalent as Charlotte Gainsbourg (yeah, daughter of...) and with justified reasons this movie was be a sort of springboard for Charlotte's further career. Charlotte plays the role of a teenager whose life is totally overruled by boredom both by the persons she's surrounded with (her only friend is a sick ten year old girl Lulu) and the village she lives in. Nothing ever happens and the usual parties at the local disco cant convince Charlotte in no way...all she wanna do is escape if only she could. But then it happens when a girl of her age enters the village to give a concert (the girl is a pianoplayer who is worldwide respected). Charlotte tries everything to become the pianist best friend with only one purpose : to escape from the dull world she is living in... As said the whole film has one focal point : Charlotte Gainsbourg and it is perhaps the best teenermovie ever made and it makes you forget the many stupid things that were sended by us by the likes of Matthew Broderick or any other John Hughes-icons. Superb movie!
