Jewish teen girl breaks into all-male school jazz band
22 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

This is a French film with English subtitles about a chubby but pretty high school Jewish girl who isn't happy with her life.

However she competes for a spot in an all-boy school jazz band, playing a super "double bass" violin, and wins. Before and after winning, she has to put up with many pranks by the non-Jewish boys in the band.

All the characters and actors in this film as well as the main topic and sub-topics, are a pleasure to watch. The girl's parents, sisters, and uncle are especially well written and played.

There is one scene of male frontal nudity so perhaps not suitable for small children.
