Dada Kubin's rating of the film Ava

Absolutely wonderful film about the resilience and fantasy of young people on the verge of adulthood. Once again a film that shows that you can take common themes – last summer, sexual awakening etc. – and still give them a fresh look. “Ava” is told in adorably non-realistic style, almost like a fairy-tale, with beautiful pictures and imaginative sound design. And Noeé Abita is the perfect Ava.
