A Real Young Girl

Une vraie jeune fille

Directed by Catherine Breillat
France, 1976
  • French, German
  • German


Catherine Breillat’s controversial exploration of a teenage girl’s sexuality, based on her own novel.

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.
