This is about the 15-year-old sexuality, which of course includes shyness, uncertainty and envy of the "experienced". We have seen just too many American films about the subject. The French approach has more meat, more body liquids, but not necessarily more heart.
Julie Durand is good, making a girl who hasn't had menstruation yet into a kind of longing sex-monster. But there is no real compassion here, no sensitivity. Although un-experienced, the characters look the opposite in many ways. It's unrealistic.
