First underwater love story for Sally HAWKINS (The Shape of the water). A taste of the sixties free cinema (Rich LESTER, Ken LOACH's Poor Cow, Loneliness of the Long-distance Runner, etc). ======== Une histoire attachante sur l'adolescence, la mélancolie, au parfum des sixties. Et une première marine pour Sally HAWKINS avant "La Forme de l'eau".
This film has a cute quirkiness to it that makes it better than most "coming of age" films and has a visual style that make it pleasing to watch. British wit is much more funnier than the banal easy American teenage sex comedies when all comes down to it though so it is easy to choose this one over any Hollywood comedy any day, anytime.
