Reviews

The debut feature of Jordan Scott, daughter of Ridley Scott, is a period drama set in an English boarding school for girls in the 1930s. Many of the girls at the school have a crush on their beautiful young swimming instructor, the enigmatic Miss G (Eva Green). Hitherto Miss G has done little to discourage their idolatry, but when exotic Spanish pupil Fiamma (Maria Valverde) starts at the school, Miss G's attention is diverted as she becomes increasingly fascinated by the new arrival - much to the chagrin of her doting devotees.

Format: DVD
The familiar story of the inspirational teacher is given a deliciously sinister twist in this adaptation of the Sheila Kohler's novel by Jordan Scott. Set in a boarding school in the 1930s, a group of schoolgirls under the thrall of daring glamorous diving instructor Miss G is shook up by the arrival of a talented and exotic new girl. Eva Green at first comes across as a little mannered and not totally convincing, but her Joan Crawford impersonation ends up being appropriate and suited to her character and she carries it off well. The story perhaps doesn't delve as deeply into the strange alien world of the female adolescent mindset as some other recent foreign films on the subject (Innocence, Water Lilies), following instead a mostly conventional line on bullying and female power games - but even that gives rise to events that are truly shocking and all too believable. Beautifully photographed - you'd expect that at least from the daughter of Ridley - with excellent, natural performances from the girls, Cracks is a strong debut from Jordan Scott.

Saw this film after seeing it reviewed in a magazine. From the first few moments till right to the end the tension between teacher and students was electric, but they could have explored the budding crush the teacher had for the spanish girl a little more. Eva Green is once again captivating and beautiful, a lush film for a rainy afternoon with a mug of chocolate. Delicious!!

A fantastic first film from Ms Scott and a fabulous performance from all the main characters, but especially Eva Green. This is a gentle and intelligent film that explores the dark side of love and infatuation. Ms Scott treats the story with delicacy and subtley that draw the viewer into the isolated world enhabitted by the characters. The cinematorgraphy is just lovely. This is definately not a film for people who want action and a fast pace, but if you want an inteligent film that explores human emotion and relationships and will stay with you long afterwards, then I can totaly recomend it.

A fantastic debut from Jordan Scott thanks to the talented stunner Eva Green. Add to that a strong supporting cast and you've got a film you are going to want to keep hold of and watch more than once.

Loved this film, think Jordan Scott has a great future but then she comes from a rich pedigree with Ridley her father and Tony her uncle. The photography was brilliant and very atmospheric.

Really enjoyable movie, set in a girls boarding school, with a teacher who always seemed to take them swimming outside rather than doing lessons, even waking the girls up to drag them out of their beds, a teacher who definitely lives in a fantasy world, I could guess what was going to happen once I noticed the new spanish girl Fiammas condition, but it had an ending which was unexpected and I liked that about the film.
I bought the movie soundtrack first as it is beautiful, Javier Navarrete is a wonderful composer. (he also did PAN'S LABYRINTH music) so couldnt wait to get hold of the DVD after the soundtrack.
Di (Juno Temple) played a great part in the film as the main character and gang leader of the girls.
Put the kettle on, get in your cosy chair and enjoy this girly film

Cracks definitely looks ominous by the cover.

However, once you're watching it its beautiful cinematography suggests an idyll that is both sterotypical and yet beautifully extravagant. If you like movies like Atonement, where the plot feels like there is a strong sense of omen from the start, set against a period background, then this film is for you.In terms of plot, the character of Miss G (played by Eva Green) is very sinister, yet one cannot fail to be mesmerised by her screen presence.

A film not heard by many people, but it has the feel of the bigger screen pictures.
