French road trip tale with serious undertones
2 May 2015 | by (London,United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is the new film from Agnès B (Agnes Trouble) who brought us 'Spring breakers'. This time she has chosen a more serious subject; Céline is the eldest of three children. Her mother works shifts at a bar and her father is an unemployed stone cutter - he is also sexually abusing her.

As she becomes more withdrawn she confides the truth only in her 'Barbie' doll and is seen as an outsider by her school mates. Then on a school trip to the seaside she wanders off and climbs into the unlocked cab of a lorry. This belongs to a Scottish lorry driver and the two have an instant rapport - what unfolds will have consequences for all.

Now none of the above is a plot spoiler as it is all in the synopsis; what would be a plot spoiler would be to mention the plot holes. There are quite a few instances where a fair amount of poetic licence is taken as to how things normally pan out. That of course is the prerogative of the film makers but some critics have been fairly harsh about them.

It is though undoubtedly well acted, directed and has a clear style that raise it above the ordinary. It also has a natural pace and rhythm that means it is never slacking. The issues being looked at are also only touched upon which some will find a bit of a letdown, but once again this was never about providing answers. Original title is 'Je m'appelle Hmmm...' in French with some English and good sub titles. It is though a film that lovers of French cinema will want to see and those who like their movies slightly different.
