With a loving eye for its naturally acted adolescent characters and with excellent cinematography, Douches froides finally runs too long to be engaging throughout.

Audience Reviews for Douches froides (Cold Showers)

[font=Century Gothic]In "Cold Showers," despite living in a chaotic household with an alcoholic father(Jean-Philippe Ecoffey) and a mother(Florence Thomassin) who rations out the electricity, Mickael(Johan Libereau) is doing well in high school where he is dating Vanessa(Salome Stevenin) and is the captain of the judo team. He is also asked by Louis Steiner(Aurelien Recoing), a local businessman, to train with his son Clement(Pierre Perrier). Better yet, after a win, the team moves onto the European Championship and Steiner offers to sponsor the team but one of the wrestlers is injured in a bit of horseplay. To replace him, Mickael vounteers to lose the 8 kilograms necessary to get down to his weight...[/font]

[font=Century Gothic]"Cold Showers" is a sensitive and thoughtful, yet provocative movie about teen sexuality.(Since this is the subject, I will not object to so many scenes being set in the locker rooms.) Even though these characters have the physical maturity to engage in sex, they do not have the emotional maturity to cope with the repercussions. Also on the physical side, Mickael is confident that he can lose enough weight in time without anything going wrong.[/font]
