This is the story of a French teenage girl, Solange who prepares a hairstyle exam. She leads a peaceful life without any fuss. One day, she's meeting a girl, Gaby who opens her eyes on the world of sex and boys. From that moment on, she's obsessed by one sole idea: losing her virginity. Will she succeed in?
The director Caroline Vignal chose to shot a delicate topic with reserve and discretion. She avoids all that could move the movie closer to obscenity and pornography. The movie also enjoys of Julie Leclercq's presence, a young and beautiful actress who for her first movie showed talent. It doesn't stop her from being sometimes inexpressive.
A failing that I found in this movie is that it's suffering from a certain dullness. It means that Vignal's directing lacks of punch and liveliness. It's the same thing for the performance on the whole.
"Les autres filles" remains a light but a little listless movie that left me unsatisfied.
