Storyline

My Life on Ice presents the unique point of view of 16-year-old Etienne, a cute would-be ice skating champion living in provincial Rouen who is obsessed with filming his daily life with a digital camera. Told from his subjective perspective, the focus of Etienne's video diary subtly takes shape as he records his single mother, his best friend Ludovic, and, almost stalker-like, his handsome male geography teacher Laurent. Though explaining his goal is to match his mother with Laurent, he gradually comes to the realization that other unconscious desires are motivating him, as hinted at in an intense discussion with Ludovic about the possibility of love between men.

nice film
25 March 2004 | by (fisshing creek nj usa) – See all my reviews

i liked this film but i found it puzzling for the following reasons: it was too well made to be a completely amature production

the family depicted seem to be show biz types rather than of the bourgeois. come on, showing mama getting screwed! if that what it was supposed to show.

other than that it was a worthwhile film. i watched with envy the high quality of the built environment shown when compared to the crap civilization we have here in the US
