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.
