La Belle Personne

Christophe Honoré France, 2008

HKFanatic's rating of the film The Beautiful Person

The movie's vision of a perpetually overcast France full of pale-skinned and pouty-lipped Parisian teens may or may not be an accurate reflection of reality, but it's a reality I'd like to escape to. This is a film about love, a subject that is sacred to some and passe to others, but I was mostly just thrilled to see a film that treats young love with the same seriousness and severity as teenagers experience it.
