Mr. Duigan avoids melodrama, which is all to the good. Yet his gift for the acutely observed commonplace detail is neither strong nor original enough to transform the movie into something comparable to so many similar, better films.

Flirting is one of those rare movies with characters I cared about intensely. I didn't simply observe them on the screen, I got involved in their decisions and hoped they made the right ones.

Nowhere near as novel as The Year My Voice Broke....but still worthwhile

Not only worthy of its fine predecessor, this tender, perceptive, and gorgeously acted memory piece may even surpass it in subtlety, feeling, and depth of characterization.

Miles ahead of the average teen film, Flirting is a most agreeable sequel to John Duigan's earlier pic The Year My Voice Broke.

If Duigan maintains the dark yet humanistic humor that has graced both films, we should all be back for more.

Animation is used here clearly to allow the story to be told with a certain amount of distance, yet the constant shift in tone and introduction of video elements keeps the film intensely unsettling.

The formulaic script finally had something to say toward the end.

This kind of emotional precision -- that is, this ability to make the subtlest psychological distinctions -- is a rare gift, and Duigan gets full mileage out of it.

If you're feeling nostalgic for the high of a first love, or you're just plain high on love, anyway, then see Flirting. It will give you the warm fuzzy that you've been looking for.

Writer-director John Duigan has come up with witty, intelligent dialogue and elicits incredibly natural performances from his young stars.
