At age 17, Eglantine is troubled by a number of things. Her argumentative parents comprise an absentee and philandering father and an overprotective, occasionally alcoholic mother. Her boyfriend Sébastien is a couple of years older; he's ready, but she isn't. Frequent furtive visits to her therapist help her to see that these issues are not 'problems', but 'difficulties', which she has the strength to overcome. Written by David Carless

Yes... but! It does certainly make you think!
22 May 2004 | by PassionMovieSee all my reviews

Do you go to cinema to think? So do I! Do you go to cinema to be entertained? So do I!.. Well! Here you can reach both of these aims! This first feature of Yves Lavandier (the most respected theoretician of dramaturgy in France - who, I've heard, has written a book called Dramaturgy now translated into Spanish and English) shows that one can be a good screenwriter and a good director. His movie is both entertaining and deep. It talks about first love, parenthood's dependence, needs to grow up alone, but well accompanied... well. In short, how to become a mature grown up, not being totally f***ed up. Interesting & entertaining. Universal & particular. What do you look for in movies? Me? certainly nothing more than that! A nice moment that lasts more in my mind than the time (one hour and a half) that I have been spending in the theater! :)
