Synopsis

Alice, a sulky teenage girl, reluctantly returns to her parents’ house for yet another boring summer vacation. Preyed by sexual desire and caged fantasies, she fantasizes about Jim, her father’s young employee, and tries to seduce him by all means.

Our take

Deemed obscene for its fearless depiction of teenage sexuality, A Real Young Girl did not receive a proper release until 2001. A landmark film debut from rebel Catherine Breillat that, in hindsight, first introduces the controversial themes the filmmaker has subsequently dedicated her career to.
