If you can buy into the premise, good luck to you. I didn't.
The screenplay is marred by clumsy foreshadowing and other contrivances, but Téchiné and Sciamma have tapped into something genuine: the deep confusion at the dawn of sexuality.
Age in Being 17 comes in awkward bursts, and yet the film moves sublimely. Director Téchiné, 73 years old, is wise beyond his years.
What elevates the film is not just its beautiful setting in the French Pyrenees but also how the beautiful mountain exteriors serve as a metaphor for characters' inner lives.
Few filmmakers have portrayed the messy reality of human desire and sexuality as consistently, as elegantly, and as powerfully as André Téchiné.
Overwrought, confused, and melodramatic, it reflects well what it's like being 17.
Being 17 is not easy, but I look forward to Being 18 all the same to see where these guys end up.
Being 17 is a thoughtful coming-of-age story with great performances, honest storytelling, beautiful cinematography and subtle direction that is sure to delight; if you can overlook its questionable morals.
Being 17 is an exploration of masculinity and sensitivity at an age of uncertainty.
It's through performance and technique that Being 17 comes to life.
A series of discoveries and hard truths.
Being 17 cleverly embraces its own silliness in a way that is both reassuring and endlessly pleasurable.
