Storyline

At age 17, Eglantine is troubled by a number of things. Her argumentative parents comprise an absentee and philandering father and an overprotective, occasionally alcoholic mother. Her boyfriend Sébastien is a couple of years older; he's ready, but she isn't. Frequent furtive visits to her therapist help her to see that these issues are not 'problems', but 'difficulties', which she has the strength to overcome. Written by David Carless

"Oui, mais..." my favorite French film
3 June 2002 | by (Richmond VA, United States) – See all my reviews

"Oui, mais..." mirrors the emotion of "American Beauty" but at the same is full of laughs. The film is about a teen that sees a psych to analyze her relationships (with her parents and her boyfriend). The film's two youngest actors, Emilie Dequenne (Eglantine) and Cyrille Thouvenin (Sebastien), really pull you into the story and have great on-screen chemistry. I first saw the film at the Virginia Commonwealth University French Film Festival in Richmond, VA and wanted to purchase it. Being able to buy the DVD or VHS of "Oui, mais..." in the US (instead paying a fortune to have it shipped from France) would be wonderful.
