Movie Info

Spunky Talia makes her extreme displeasure known when her stepfather returns after an unexplained year-long absence. She suspects him of molesting her younger sister, but their mother is blinded by her mate's paycheck. So when her stepdad orders Talia to ditch her beloved dog, a docile pit bull, Talia and Kim take off for a nearby housing project where Talia plans to lie low with her dog. Hiding out gets complicated for Talia, when she hooks up with an interracial group of four crooked friends

Worth checking out -- especially for the naturalistic performances by the feisty Touly and the rest of the young cast.

Captures the vulnerability and aimlessness of its unfortunate characters with a heart-in-your-throat rawness.

Cinematic loitering... enough to make you yearn for the halcyon days of, ya know, adulthood...

French director Jacques Doillon has a knack for presenting in natural ways the hardships and challenges of youth.

The unforced performances are crucial in maintaining the film's sense of realism and immediacy.

Its final scenes are so slapdash and rambling that one wonders whether the young actors have assumed writing and directing duties as well.

Tries to cover too many very serious topics in too short a time.

An intriguing character study into lives rarely captured on film with such pleasant simplicity.
