Oui, mais... (Yes, But...) (2002)
Writer/director Yves Lavandier presents the story of Eglantine (Émilie Dequenne), a troubled 17-year old whose family situation is as confusing as her romantic entanglements. Raised by a coddling mother and an absent father, Eglantine navigates life with a warped perspective that ends up affecting her relationship with Sébastien (Cyrille Thouvenin), an older boyfriend that's become frustrated with Eglantine's unwillingness to take things to the next level. Only her therapist has the chance to help her break down the walls that are interfering in this critical step into adulthood. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi … More

Audience Reviews for Oui, mais... (Yes, But...)
A lovely film that tells the story of a young woman, Eglantine (Emilie Duquenne), who seeks the help of a therapist to sort out her life. Gerard Jugnot is superb as the therapist, Erwann Moenner, who helps Eglantine figure out what she wants from life and how to establish her independence from her controlling wreck of a mother and her emotionally distant father. A bit of a fairy tale, but the film overcomes that minor flaw by showing us a young woman who finds the strength within to take control of her destiny. A strong script, an extremely competent cast, and a lively pace left this viewer with little to find fault. Only the tendency to use narration by the therapist to fill in the back story and supply the psychological underpinnings for the course of therapy marred what was otherwise a terrific cinematic experience.More
