Léa is not just the "student stripper" suggested by the German title and by some reviews. She is a sensitive girl, intelligent and gracefully beautiful, who has obviously never had it easy. The scenario does not waste time on background details, you can either forget about them or imagine your own - really the film is about how Léa looks for something which has been missing in her life. I watched it in three sittings, as I found I needed to reflect a little on what I had seen and what it meant for the protagonist (I use the singular because it is no coincidence that the original title is just "Léa" - of the other characters, only her grandmother really seems to matter).
A film which I will want to watch again.
