Storyline

Lili, a pouty and voluptuous 14-year-old, is caravan camping with her family in Biarritz. She's self-aware and holds her own in a café conversation with a concert pianist she meets, but she has a wild streak and she's testing her powers over men, finding that she doesn't always control her moods or actions, and she's impatient with being a virgin. She sets off with her brother to a disco, latching onto an aging playboy who is himself hot and cold to her. She is ambivalent about losing her virginity that night, willing the next, and determined by the third. The playboy's mix of depression and misogyny ends their unconsummated affair, so Lili has to hunt elsewhere. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Fascinating coming of age film
13 November 2000 | by (Bedfordshire,England) – See all my reviews

36 Fillette or "Virgin" which is the English title, is a film set in France which portrays a couple of days in the life of a 14 year old girl who trying to explore her sexuality for the first time. She meets a play boy who at first she teases and does not want to make love to which enfuriates him but as the film goes on the guy starts to have second thoughts and the tables are turned. While this film is engrossing , and maybe only for voyeuristic reasons ,it does have the problem that most French films do, which is far to much diologue. The acting is a plus point. 6 out of 10.
