East Bay Express

The Coulin sisters spin a web of ironic, double-edged fantasy over the girls of Lorient and their child's-eye view of life.

The wonder of this remarkable film is that it retains an innocence of its own, even while alluding to the darkness on the horizon.

Exceedingly well-done film, based on a real news story, which addresses a growing international youth dilemma.

It's a subtle cautionary tale that also serves as an insightful if exaggerated examination of contemporary adolescence.

The movie takes you inside the dreamy collective mentality of bored, mildly rebellious girls who look with horror at the lives of their mostly working-class parents.

The movie needs a tighter grip, yet the narrative detours, including a beach party and one especially liberating confrontation, can be surprisingly joyous.

The film's rhythms mimic the volatile emotional life of adolescence: the violent rushes between euphoria and despair, the overconfident contempt for adults mixed with regressive dependence when things fall apart.

"17 Girls" doesn't try to explain its many mysteries. That would have made for a better film, but this one does a nice job showing its effects.

17 Girls has a nice look, and strong performances, but ultimately, the Coulins fail to go deeply enough into the heads of their protagonists.

The story is remarkable in that it does an honest telling of real life events and does it accurately, too.

Delphine and Muriel Coulin make their feature film debut using the real life 2008 'pregnancy pact' scandal of Gloucester, Massachusetts as a jumping off point for a stunning looking contemplation on the often obsessive romanticism of teenaged girls.

The film captures a moment when irrationality and romantic self-delusion go viral -- and the difficulty of containing such elements.

A rare film focusing on the feelings, fears, dreams and emotions of girls.

Impressively, the rookie scribe-helmers' sense of equilibrium is unerring and also surprisingly subtle.

17 Girls is allegedly inspired by true events, but this diffident, dreamy film is so insubstantial it's hard to believe there's a speck of reality to be found in it.

The film suggests a state of grace between childhood and adulthood, but the narrative feels increasingly tentative, and the characters remain opaque - "local divas," in one teacher's estimation.

The question is why this incident seemed worth dramatizing, especially in such a dreamily romanti-cized way - with perfect pregnancies and friendly baby daddies.

Plays like the most lyrical after-school special ever; it gives lip service to the teens' anxieties and euphoria while threading in the occasional swoonworthy image.

At which point does a superficially "nonjudgmental" approach simply seem coy rather than sincerely evenhanded?
