Storyline

12 1/2 Lou lives alone with her absurdly immature mother, Emma. She spends her days playing with cat, eating at a italian restaurant, and spying on her dreamy neighbor Tristan, obsessively journaling his every move. But all this changes with arrival of the new bohemian neighbor, Richard, who ignites her goofy mother's romantic interest and triggers a series of increasingly embarrassing episodes. Written by TV

difficult to review a children's film
20 March 2015 | by wvisser-leusdenSee all my reviews

My vote 8 is due to the good picturing & acting in 'Lou ! journal infime' (= French for 'Lou, minimal story').

'Lou !' clearly is a children's film, destined for an age of about 9 up to early teenage. Given this, it looks nice enough to me; however, at the age of 62 I cannot judge well if it appeals to children of this age. Even more so, if it appeals to French children of this age -- for Lou ! is undeniably a very French film.

Ludivine Sagnier is known for extremes in choosing her films: let's say she is not afraid to try every possible role under the sun. Although Sagnier's acting in 'Lou !' is good, her new and unexpected role in a film like this adds another extreme. Making it more difficult to give her a stable position in your cinematic appreciations.
