Critic Reviews for Une Vraie Jeune Fille (A Real Young Girl) (A Real Young Lady)
An intelligent coming-of-age story about a girl who realizes, for better or for worse, that there's no turning back.
A surreal voyage into adolescent sexuality.
While the film could be construed as pornographic in nature, the intention of the narrative function is to examine the psyche and sexuality of a young girl within the political and social context of Niort, France in 1963.
To Breillat innocence is little more an imaginary state, something to yearn for while dealing with life, one orifice at a time
It plods along, from one dull scene of mundane 'ordinary' life to the next.

Audience Reviews for Une Vraie Jeune Fille (A Real Young Girl) (A Real Young Lady)
Catherine Breillat's, the provocative French feminist director, explicit film about the sexual awakening of a girl in her puberty stage in the '70s. A typical equation mark between Sex & Death as which being further explored & more often seen in her later work. An absolute self-indulgence style just like every other work of Breillat.
[font=Century Gothic]In "A Real Young Girl", Alice(Charlotte Alexandra) is a teenager on summer break from school. When she is not laying about fantasizing about various local young men, she is exploring the countryside on her bicycle. She is also lying about the whereabouts of her report card.[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]With "A Real Young Girl", Catherine Breillat makes a provocative and explicit first movie. She brings her unique sensibility to this coming of age tale. The film does tend to seem a bit amateurish, though.[/font]
Another one of those European "girl coming to age and feeling sexually curious" movies, done as only the Euros can. Now, if made in America, this movie EASILY gets an NC-17, if not an X. There are several, very explicit scenes involving various forms of masturbation - with worms, with flowers, with a bottle and with a bike seat. It's as if this girl just woke up one morning and said, "Damn. I'm kinda horny." If I was teaching a Sex in Cinema class, this would be one film that I'd screen. Cut out all the standing in front of the mirror and groping her breasts, and the masturbation scenes, and the fantasys of banging the stud at the wood mill, you have about a 30 minute movie. And that's just the girl. Then you've got the husband/father who has this creepy psuedosexual relationship with his daughter. And when he unzips on the ferris wheel at a carnival and shows a girl his dick, you know the MPAA would've had a fun time trying to distinguish between NC-17 and X. As it is, the current version is shown as unrated. On a side note, the main theme is so damn catchy.
