  • Oct 19, 2007
    A cute little french film, let's admit it! It was quick, smooth and adorable and it almost felt like biting into a piece of sweet coconut pie. Since there is no synopsis, then I think it is my duty to provide one, haha! So okay: this is NOT a movie about Avril Lavigne! I've seen tons of comments of close-minded people raving about that commercial singer so get that out of your minds because this movie definitely needs to be recognized as something different. So okay, back to the point. This is basically the story of a young nun, Avril (April for the english version I believe) and how she learns to live her life and get something worthwhile out of it once she learns she has a twin brother out there in the big world, outside of the convent. Of course, she falls in love, but it's not sappy and the focus of the film is not on the romance but on the psychological evolution of Avril's character. Scenes comprised of dialogue form the bulk of this movie, although it's so nicely put that you can't help being a sponge and absorb it all. Also, every scene without dialogue is almost sacred; it's calm and poised and incredibly poetic (the body painting scene, you should watch out for that). I strongly recommend this to anyone who's enjoyed "L'Auberge Espagnole" or "Potluck" and "Avenue Montaigne". Well basically anyone who has a soft spot for french films and hearing those french actors' sweet little accents.
