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.

How I love these French movies. They have everything, including that subtle sadness.

between the ages of 11 and entering 13 yrs old most girls have done sexual things with another girl or boy or both, like sucking or licking, by the time they hit the teens meaning 13 yr old they go with much older guys, like guys with grey hair, as they learn more from older guys or older women, than you pups, who are still in nappies at the age of 49, something happen to some men who hit midlife, of 50 and onwards, many young girls in the preteens and teenage yrs, have gone with many older people. in that age group, the so called laws are made up – by self righteous people that they have right to tell some stranger what they can and cannot do. there is no law on sex with anyone at any age, its just someone making a claim that they are your property and you are there slave and this is their law. that is forced upon you. whereby you like it or not. everyone has a right to experiencing sexual things when they are ready and want this for themselves. no one has that right to interfere with another.

Lousy acting. Characters who are hrs to like. The girl is a real pain. Movie is a draft. Big time.
