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>

A Story Of Coming Of Age Without A Point
14 May 1999 | by (Brea, Ca. USA) – See all my reviews

36 Fillette is an aimless journey of coming of age by a 14 year old girl played extremely well by Delphine Zentout. She talks her brother into taking her to a disco where she is eventually taken advantage of by a much older man played by Etienne Chicot. She is an angry girl whose home life leaves a lot to be desired. This film really has no point other than to continually think of ways for an older man to have sex with a 14 year old girl. Pass on this meaningless story. Too bad as the acting was very good.
