Storyline

Sisters Léa and Aurélie, 19 and 13, live in Paris with their mom. They miss their dad, who drowned. Their mom has a new man, Vincent, a cop. The girls are angry, stealing wallets from gymnasium locker rooms and running a con on men Aurélie invites to an empty gym (Léa bursts in, law book in hand, quoting the penal code on statutory rape). Aurélie befriends a runaway, Anne-Sophie, 19, who tells them her dad, who's abandoned her, lives across the street; Léa reluctantly takes her in and designs a series of vengeful pranks that disrupt his life. Things get worse when a victim of their scam has a heart attack. All roads lead back to their dad's death. Can healing happen? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Not memorable but enjoyable
24 January 2003 | by CaibaanSee all my reviews

A film that delivers both great one-liners and appealing characters, Voyous Voyelles makes for a wonderful movie. Director Serge Meynard makes the film look simple. The appearance somewhat gives it the impression of being bland, but he makes up for it with an interesting plot sometimes resulting in unusual circumstances. Although the anomalous situations tends to diverge from practicality. Meynard focuses heavily on the characters, the very strength and fiber of the film, and not to mention, that they're played nicely by attention-grabbing actresses. Audrey Tautou, the star of `Amelie' is comical in a sardonic way (as is the case playing a rich girl scorned by an older man), and her counterparts, Olivia Bonamy and Axelle Ade-Pasdeloup are convincing in their roles as mischievous sisters coping after the death of their father by stealing and conning people. The three girls are a riot act and their growing relationships to one another is touching. The sisters having to find closure of their father's death and having to start (reluctantly) a relationship with their mother's newfound love is undoubtedly poignant. With all this, however, Voyous Voyelles is a flawed film. It doesn't seem to have the depth that it could have. It also feels lengthy, somewhat dragging at times. The music isn't something to praise, not surprisingly, but better chosen pieces would have helped enhance the film. In short, Voyous Voyelles isn't an enduring film. There's nothing note-worthy about it, but it is an enjoyable, delightful film.
