Discovering love
21 May 2002 | by (Paris) – See all my reviews

I didn't expect much from this movie, I must say I liked it quite a lot. Sabine, a young mathematics genius (maybe more "uncommonly talented for mathematics" than "genius") living in the poor part of Lille (the main french north city) discovers love and sex with an older man, a theater author who comes from czekia. Sabine gets foolish, makes great mistakes, is both cruel and innocent, disturbs all her life and gets out of her destiny... There is maybe not a lot more to tell about this movie except that the acting is never false, even the teenagers part - french movies, very often, are not very good when they talk about teenagers but this one is really ok. I gave it a 9/10.
