Trivia

Lisa Azuelos both wrote and directed this film after realizing that movies based on teen life in her home country of France were almost entirely missing. She would often see her daughter go to the theatre to watch either an American teen movie or a horror film. See more »

Goofs

In the beginning of the film, Lola says her nickname is Lol and that everyone calls her that, but throughout the course of the film, nobody calls her Lol - only Lola. See more »

User Reviews

 
Divorced mum, teenage daughter, high school friends, growing up, etcetera
28 December 2012 | by ubetidoSee all my reviews

I don't wish to spoil this for anyone else - I read another review which said he'd seen Sophie in Braveheart and he wished this movie "Lol" had English subtitles. In Australia SBS shows all the foreign "non-English" films with subtitles.

If you are after a mother / daughter problems / boyfriends story with a happy ending . . . go for it. There were some interesting story lines and subplots of relationships.

Sophie was 42 when this movie was made. She was 29 when she played a French princess in the 14th century Scottish / English historical tale with Mel Gibson. I also preferred her part in the movie "Anthony Zimmer" a suspense French police / Russian mafia drama.
