Plot – Spoilers:
Lili is a 14-year-old, on holiday at a French seaside with her parents and older brother. She can’t stand her family much – a feeling that’s mutual. She feels closest to her brother, though this too is a relationship often dragged out through manipulation.
Lili’s current preoccupation is her virgin status. On the one hand, she triumphantly holds on to it as a symbol of not having conformed. On the other, she desperately dangles it while seeking the attention of men. Sometimes she just wants to talk, other times she wishes the men would just help her get it done with. This lends her an ironic, foul-mouthed nature that confuses those drawn in by her underage body and overly developed boobs.
Delphine Zentout was 16 when this was made, in case that was a thought that crossed your mind.
Lousy acting. Characters who are hrs to like. The girl is a real pain. Movie is a draft. Big time.
