Anders Danielsen Lie,
It is sweet in its portray of youth, naive and also hard on the effects of the changes one has to go through to become an adult. It shows how important some decisions are and how where you come from will determine your references of right or wrong, and will shape what hurts you and what just annoys with no further consequence. The kids perform impressively, with an apparent natural connection. Everything in the movie means something, every scene has a consequence and a cause, and be sure everything you see and hear will shape the outcome. Guillaume Senez is also a very sensitive director, and often enough the frame will unfold another detail you have to get. There is indeed a more than interesting male perceptive over teenage pregnancy, but the movie also brings rather strong secondary characters with truth and solemnity.
