Not Coming to a Theater Near You

I first saw Fat Girl upon its original US theatrical release in 2001. I left the theater exhilarated. Three years on, I feel I had been fooled.

Bold but unrelenting in its depiction of both physical and emotional aggression, Fat Girl will be bracing for those open to its challenges and brutal for those who aren't.

A strange, discomfiting and fascinating film about the horrors of adolescence.

It's compelling, honest, poignant, somewhat sad and, at the end, very disturbing -- in short, quite a good movie.

For women, especially those who have sisters, it should be a must-see.

While Fat Girl is graphic and shocking, it is a more compelling argument than Romance.

Montreal Film Journal

Don't encourage Breillat by watching her self-indulgent, utterly unenjoyable and shallow little exposÚ.

Charlotte Observer

The relationship between the girls is the most complicated in the picture, a Gordian knot of affection, resentment, envy, jealousy and intellectual sparring.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Breillat is a skilled director, who has created a troubling film that examines the simple pleasures of the human condition for young people and puts a complex spin on it.

This is not one of [Breillat's] better efforts.

Brian Webster
Apollo Guide

Not subtle and certainly not a film that protects anyone's sensibilities. For this, and for Catherine Breillat's understanding of the pain of youth, it's well worth watching.

Frank Ochieng
Movie Eye

Blunt and polarizing, Breillat's brilliant film captures something so vividly imaginative and compounding in a search for risky titilation at the expense of eager self-discovering teen virgins.

[Reboux's] heartbreaking performance makes the movie quite watchable in spite of its obvious flaws.

Few Hollywood child actors could pull off anything close to what Reboux and Mesquida achieve.

Anais is not an object of pity or fun. She simply is. And after seeing Fat Girl, we understand her why and how.

No other film released so far this year is likely to generate as much discussion afterward.

Sacramento Bee

A bracing antidote/response to the sleazy teen-oriented sex comedies that are churned out on an assembly line by mainstream Hollywood.

Sacramento News & Review

Between the scenes of teen-porn that are the film's main purpose ... Breillat indulges the penchant she showed in Romance for pretentious, idiotic dialogue.
