All about growing up
2 December 2003 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

A typical French art-house film when you consider most French art-house films to be filled with mindless imagery and deep misleading symbolism with a sharp and incomplete ending. Either way, Nenette et Boni is a nice coming of age drama about growing up and changing as a person. It's innocent how the only character in the movie who isn't 'horny' is the pet rabbit. Everyone else is always on the look out for love, one way or another. Vincent Gallo was a nice surprise. To see an American have a roll in a French film can sometimes be a treat. Here, he is. Much like the rest of the cast, he shows his emotions physically.
