  • Ciprian David's rating of the film Le jeune Werther

    Children being adults. The camera helps a lot, by following them closely on eye height, quite obsessively, and thus accentuating the eerie contrast at the core of the film. A mise en scene that few films can be proud of leads one to really savor the films core: motion. Coexisting, a net of the characters' ages characteristic fast blossoming and changing net of passions. and love interests. The child-actors are great!
