While the story line was contrived, this film is a wonderful vehicle for Doillon to help kids express themselves on screen. He seems every bit the master of drawing out of early adolescents that magical time between the innocence of childhood and the harder reality of adulthood as was Truffaut in the 400 Blows and Small Change. This makes the film worth watching.
