Distinctly and intimately directed by French filmmaker Katell Quillévéré, this quietly paced fictional tale which is narrated from multiple viewpoints though mostly from the main character`s point of view, draws a tender and incisive portrayal of a French daughter`s relationship with her parents, her bed-ridden grandfather and a same-aged boy.Read more ›
The intelligent script takes an intriguing approach to the story, refusing to spell out everything that's going on and allowing us to fill in the gaps for ourselves, through glances, body language and what feels like a series of vignettes rather than a straightforward, dialogue-heavy narrative.Anna'a problems with religion are summed up by a terrifying bishop who starkly separates the body and the spirit in his sermon,which explodes in the minefield of her own sexuality,ancient Catholic and small town repression against her blossoming youth. Beautiful photography, eclectic soundtrack(mostly English folk songs and a song by Radiohead sung by a female choir).Her grandfather and Pierre appear to be atheistic in temperament which suits her hormones more,these two being the anchorage of her life. A beautifully directed, superbly written and brilliantly acted coming-of-age drama that marks cowriter/ director Quillevere out as a talent to watch.

A lovely film full of French nuances. It typically leaves space between scenes to allow an intake of action. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Stave
