Storyline

This summer, at the port-city of Lorient in Brittany, something amazing happened. Young rebellious dreamer Camille is already eight weeks pregnant, the father of her unborn child is completely unimportant and out of the picture, nevertheless, the unripe school girl boldly decides to keep the baby. And then comes the unforeseen surprise. Camille, as the undisputed alpha-girl in class, convinces her high school friends to form an unbreakable pact and get pregnant simultaneously, raise their children together, be free, happy, and most of all, in charge of their lives. Before long, sixteen more girls will confidently take the plunge in a purposeful act of emancipation, dreaming of changing the world and courageously trying something different from their fearful parents. Is this the face of progress or is it just an unquiet and tumultuous childish curiosity? Either way, when you are an intrepid beautiful dreamer full of energy, who can really stand in your way?

Quotes

Camille: There was guy who found a penguin on the beach. He asked a policeman what he should do with it. And the policeman said: "You should take it to the zoo." The guy said: "Yes. Good idea. I'll take it to the zoo." Two days later, the same policeman's doing his rounds, and he ran into the same guy, still with the penguin. So he said: "Haven't you taken it to the zoo yet?" The guy said: "I did, and he loved it. Now I'm taking him to the movies."

There's something in the culture
5 December 2018 | by ersbelSee all my reviews

Men, women, young, old, when somebody from France makes a movie about coming of age the best word to describe that work is slime.

Slow script. Rigid delivery. The production team is unable to get closer to the chosen issue, but at least they can take the clothes off some young bodies and parade them around for the viewing pleasure of an audience that might creep a lot of people.
