An intelligent coming-of-age story about a girl who realizes, for better or for worse, that there's no turning back.
To Breillat innocence is little more an imaginary state, something to yearn for while dealing with life, one orifice at a time
Audience Reviews for Une Vraie Jeune Fille (A Real Young Girl) (A Real Young Lady)
[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]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]
Forty percent controversiality and sixty percent blah-ness. This film definitely captured the boredom of the female protagonist but transferring a character's boredom to the audience should never be a director's intention. Breillat's debut film isn't as challenging nor difficult as her later films but in A Real Young Girl she already had her filming liberties and under-age sexual liberation filming desires. The lead actress gets bored to the point of bizarrely experimenting mainly with her vagina (All shown in explicit detail) starting with self spooning and continuing with inserted earthworm fetishes while wire tied, lolling in sand, and incestuous undertones. If Breillat is attempting to gross out an audience it ain't working: the level of disgust thrown at viewers is the same as the one in Anatomy of Hell. It doesn't get to me; this viewer knows Breillat has sicker things in mind and asks if the restrictions of art house realism are worth abiding by. The film has virtually no action, it only hints at cross-generational horniness then minimally expands on it, and I'm not even sure if the uneventful trip was worth seeing the climax and moralistic ending.
THis is actually Ms Breillats first movie and her inexperience directing does show. Movie is hot but not as well made as her later features
