My brief review of the film
9 February 2006 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

Charlotte Gainsbourg is the main reason to watch this very typical coming-of-age film. She manages to make her character feel human and seem interesting, which is no easy task when she is playing quite a standard insecure teen character. The film does not take the tiresome story of a person wanting to escape their world and change their life to any new level, and it includes some awkward scenes (such as young girl mooning) that add nothing to the story. The film is also weighed down by an overbearing soundtrack of loud and inappropriate songs, but it is by no means a poor film overall. It is decent viewing, and the beautiful child prodigy character played Clothilde Baudon adds some zest, although as already mentioned, the lead performance is the primary reason to see this film.
