"Faded Memories expertly brings you into the sad and lonely world of teenager Cassandra (played by Anne-Sophie), as she goes through her journey to healing and wholeness. It is a beautiful, character-driven drama." (Fred K. Los Angeles)

"I found the story to be both engaging and compelling and the performances were impressive. I thought the love story was believable and I liked the unconventional structure of the narrative (the past and present sequences were effectively interwoven.) It has a handsome look and the production quality is good." (Emily M., Los Angeles)

"Faded Memories is a wonderful film that appeals to people of all ages. It is astonishing that it is written and directed by a very talented 16-year old! And, by the way, this 16-year old also stars in the film and is a convincing, natural actress. The cast is strong and believable. The story is honest, thought provoking and real. Anne-Sophie's film-making career is off to a terrific start." (Jeff W., Los Angeles)

"At 16, Anne-Sophie is an AMAZING actress/writer/director/producer... I can't wait to see her work at age 26, 36, 46, or even next week. She is truly a film-making force to respect." (David P., Los Angeles)

"Faded Memories is a film deeply rooted with emotion and complexity. Each character has a story within themselves that brings the full story to life with love, danger and ultimately, the freedom of one's self.

Cassandra is a lost soul trying to find herself in the world but feels like no one can truly understand her. The character has so many layers of emotion which are portrayed throughout the film so strongly that the audience is able to connect themselves to her and feel her every emotion.

Faded Memories is like no other film I have seen. On the outside, it seems very simple and precise, however on the inside in the story itself, the complexity of it is extremely intriguing and beautiful to watch". (Nicole C., 17, Toronto)

"Anne-Sophie is a phenomenon. Her performance denotes a disarming maturity and depth. If you are interested in watching the first movie of potentially one of the next best director of our generation, watch Faded Memories. In her movie, Anne-Sophie gracefully juggles lightness and profound transformation. She is unequivocally a very promising talent to follow closely." (Marie-Josee C., Montreal)

" A breakthrough insightful film depicting how true love can break all barriers. I truly loved this film and its idea in its entirety. Rarely do I go see movies twice, but this one was the exception. Anne-Sophie truly expressed her character and made her world ours. As someone who is a true movie buff, I highly recommend this movie to anyone who could appreciate a great story line with innovative characters." (Sol R., Los Angeles)

"Dear young Sophie,

Your movie was a breath of fresh air. Confusing at times, present, future and past intersecting thorough out. Some of it looked like the creation of a troubled imaginative young girl, and I almost expected it to be a true story. The search for real love and stability by the aunt collide with the look for financial stability by the boyfriend's mom and created a tragic collusion.

I think the love story, was more about love & hate. There was something very young, naive, yet troubled about the movie, and it made me switch sides, between anger but also sympathy towards the worry mom because I am a mom, and sympathy towards the young couple because of my faded memories of my own teenage love stories." (Nava S., Los Angeles)

"This is a movie that was very insightful, a touching yet dramatic story, intriguing, a story that drew the audience in revealing something new as the story evolved. Realistic and tasteful cinema, time well spent." (Neil S., Los Angeles)

"The story of Faded Memories has a very good conflict and plot. This movie is a very sad drama, it made me cry and I would rate Faded Memories an A!" (Tara, 12, Culver City, CA)

"Anne-Sophie is an extremely talented young director; her sense of relationship between the essence of youth and nature is uncanny; I love the way she has conveyed young love as associated with water - the waves at the beach, the stillness of the lake, the joi de vivre of a water balloon fight, the cleansing glee of the rain. All of these scenes are my favorites.

The casting was also excellent - all very talented actors ably crafting their characters to support the progressive angst of the young girl. Anne-Sophie's portrayal of a "girl gone mad" is very believable, and her scenes with her co-star, Lucas, are tender, innocent and awkward, as well they should be.

I am looking forward to Anne-Sophie's next film. Considering all of the talent she has applied to the making of Faded Memories, it is certain to be another remarkable work of cinematic art." (Jane L., Los Angeles)

"I have seen this film in Los Angeles, It's the most impressive feature film I have ever seen from someone that was 16 years old. I don't know if she understands how inspiring she is and how the passion she has towards her dreams effect and rub off on those around her. She has been an inspiration in my life, and will continue to inspire others." (Michael C., Los Angeles)

"With Anne-Sophie's excellent writing, this film really brings out the depth and true emotion of love. And it really means something. This is a movie that can't be missed." (Lillian, 11, Los Angeles)
