Miss G, I wanted to thank you for lending me the book.
Did you read it?
Did you get caught?
No. And anyway, I'm not sure what all the fuss is about. I wasn't corrupted.

You will like the movie ..even if the film is rather thematic and arty..
Photography is good, particularly the diving shots of the girls in the pristine lake.. the freshness and quiet beauty of the country side..
the director certainly deserves credit for conveying very convincingly a particular aspect of love between two pairs of females - Miss G and Di and between Miss G. and Di - The suggestion of sexual attraction has been shown without indulging in crude nudity or crude language.. the loudest being " Don't make me beg."
Eva Green,as Miss G,looks ravishing and has given a superb performance.. Maria Valverde as Fiamma looks cute and has done justice to the role and so has Juno Temple as Di..
It is to be understood that movies with such themes cannot have a happy ending.. but the ending chosen by the director has reduced the weight of the otherwise artistic movie.. left open-ended, the appeal and effect would have been better ..I am not sure if the boarding school atmosphere is too bold at times..
Still a good movie, definitely for its precision
