[font=Century Gothic]In "36 Fillette", Lili(Delphine Zentout) is a 14 year old teenager who is vacationing on the seashore with her parents and 17 year old brother. She persuades her parents to let her go clubhopping with him. While hitchhiking on the way there, they catch a ride with a wealthy and older stranger who Lili takes an attraction to. Later, Lili accompanies him to his hotel room.[/font]
[font=Century Gothic]Catherine Breillat continues her fascination with teen sexuality in "36 Fillette" but tells a better constructed story than she did in "A Real Young Girl." I rather liked the ending, too.[/font]
I agree with the most recent review put forward by Cynthia M...whoever the heck that is. I like Breillat films because I find them so disturbing on so many levels. There is nothing quite like a decent film that remains in your mind for years afterwards.
A coming of age tale about a French Lolita. It's a difficult subject matter but never exploitive. It's only a short film but it is incredibly slow at times with lots of walking and sitting around waiting which can drag on at times.
