Storyline

Seventeen-year-old Beth is just finishing school, and lives in Paris with her bedridden mother and younger brother. She is annoyed because her boyfriend suggested she try sleeping with other men - the uglier the better. Sugardad, a doctor who visits her mother, and supports them with occasional cheques, now has his eyes on Beth. Alphonse, an older man, intervenes when Beth's boyfriend is fighting with her on the banks of the Seine. When she visits Alphonse later, they end up discussing poetry. Written by Will Gilbert

The Disenchanted; another look at French youth.
14 February 1999 | by See all my reviews

This is one of Director Benoit Jackuot's ("A Single Girl"-1995) earlier films. It's another look at his appreciation of female beauty and the perils of Parisian youth. Beth (Judith Godreche) is a seventeen year-old student with a younger brother and a sick mother. We never seen the mother leave bed. They are poor and survive by any means, although their main support comes in the form of a check from an older man - a former lover of the mother we assume. Beth's boyfriend challenges her to sleep with an ugly man; she takes up the challenge as the film begins. It then winds its way to the inevitable conclusion, but her relationships never entirely let us down. Like the French poet, Rimbaud, she too at a young age begins anew.
