Shocking, but necessary
7 June 2000 | by (Castres, France) – See all my reviews



A ten year old girl is received by her aunt because of her mother's confinement to a mental hospital. But the aunt lives with a man, Jean-Pierre, who seems to be a little too nice with the girl...

Pedophilia is not an easy subject, especially for a movie. But thanks to the great intelligence of the visual style, and the script, La bouche de Jean-Pierre (in English: Jean-Pierre's mouth) is one of the best films about pedophilia, without excessive pathos. Actors are amazing, especially the little girl.
