Critic Reviews for My Little Loves (Mes Petites Amoureuses)
Compassionate but never sentimental, My Little Loves is an essential entry in the coming-of-age canon, a film that ennobles adolescence by so truthfully portraying its attendant indignities.
The tone is somewhat reminiscent of Malle in its attempt at an unsentimental depiction of the sexual awakening of a 13-year-old boy; but ultimately it's more tough-minded.
It's less like a piece of finished fiction than a series of terse, precisely worded entries in a notebook. This is both the style of the film and its charm.
Loeb's calm and intensely intelligent performance, the richly textured yet cool-eyed color cinematography, and the incisive dialogue combine to convey an extraordinary density of lived experience.
Audience Reviews for My Little Loves (Mes Petites Amoureuses)
One of the best films I've ever watched about boy in his adolescence. It is not in the form of common narrative style, yet that's the most attractive point about the film. I love simpleness (without showing off director's or cinematographer's skill) and amazingly crafted scenes (each movement of boys and girls is well-choreographed) of the film. Also, I love its original tempo (Eustache has some emphasis on photographing characters walking or cycling). Of course, the kid actor who plays the hero is perfect casting. Masterpiece of films of realism.
