Hmm...

This movie is intriguing at first glance, but upon an intent viewing, one realizes that this movie has some glaring shortcomings. First and foremost, the relationship between Olympia and her lesbian mother and gay father. She cares deeply for her father, who she knows to be gay and is supportive of his relationship with his boyfriend, Christophe. However, she is terribly unsupported of her mother's relationship with Do, her lesbian lover.

Olympia has her own lover trouble with Leo and the mechanic as she meanders her way through high school. Once the whole school finds out that her mother is a lesbian, Olympia freaks about and pushes away everyone who cares about her, especially her mother, who she charges as being a sexual deviant and a dyke.

As the movie goes on, one questions why she accepts her father and not her mother. More glaring, though, is why she and her female best friend kiss after Olympia fears so much of how the homosexuality in her life is treated by her peers.

Overall, this is a good movie and is worth a rental, but do not expect an incredible movie, but rather, a good movie that needs a little more work.
