Le petit amour Regissert av Agnès Varda
Kung-Fu Master is, in many respects, another love letter from Varda to Birkin, showcasing the actress’s quicksilver shifts of feeling, her beguiling blend of wry self-consciousness and at-times startling emotional fervor. This warmth carries over to the film’s view of Mary-Jane and helps to explain the tone of knowing compassion that greets even the most questionable of Mary-Jane’s choices.

Agnès Varda’s 1988 features [Jane B. par Agnes V. and Kung-Fu Master!] are two of her most evocative, and provocative, films, and their release to wide availability is cause for celebration.

In Kung-Fu Master!, these young veterans of intensely personal projects are all the more touching for the delight they seem to take, especially in their scenes together, at having the chance to play regular kids—even if ones advancing a highly unorthodox story. Unburdened by less overt autobiography, these enchanting adolescent actors, each the sole child of a legendary union, paradoxically appear most themselves.

  • .Ana.'s rating of the film Le petit amour

    A subtle and exquisite film that touches on the mysterious subject of impossible love. Birkin's character made me think about a timelessness when it comes to love; as if she were living a naïve, teenage, pure-as-can-be love that no longer fits her own age nor while it matches her lover's. Agnès is simply outstanding. <3

  • FilmEdie's rating of the film Le petit amour

    If you can manage empathy, and I sympathize with those that can't, but if you can... my god, Varda's made the most profound universally relatable love story I have ever seen. Fear and risk and vulnerability and shame and well, fuck it, looks like I'm about to do this because there goes my better judgment... love. Biggest mystery, indeed! Not sure I've ever been so riveted by an emotionally-driven film. Well done. 4.5

  • El Biffo's rating of the film Le petit amour

    Definitely the most unsettling film I have ever seen by Agnes Varda (I have seen at least 12). I won't judge the story, but to say that it borders on pedophilia is an understatement. I don't see this as the teen fantasy that some may take it for; I found it deeply disturbing. But that can be a good sign; art should make you feel something, even if it is profound revulsion. Birkin and Gainsbourg are perfect.

  • mpho3's rating of the film Le petit amour

    "I had not seen the film in a long time. When I saw it recently, I said: ‘I don’t think we could make a film like this today and show it.’ Today everything is so heavy; people are afraid of everything... Afraid of rape, afraid of pedophilia... all the scandals w/ the priests. We are in a very self conscious, dangerous period now. But it wasn’t this dark when we made the film. - Varda to Miranda July, Fandor 3.5 stars

  • Matthew Martens's rating of the film Le petit amour

    Upon its initial release, Caryn James declared that ''Kung Fu Master is foolish and self-indulgent beyond compare [...] much too stupid to be offensive." To which I say: Pish. My biases--affection for both Jane Birkin and her daughter; fond memories of my own early adolescent triumph over Nintendo's port of Kung Fu--can't obscure the virtues of Varda's strangely delicate interplay of desire, difficulty, and disease.

  • Zac Weber's rating of the film Le petit amour

    There are parts that feel very uncomfortable, but at the same time, I couldn't help but feel intrigued. Agnes Varda's ability to juggle those emotions will be what I remember most. I love the way the camera moves in her films.

  • Chichago_'s rating of the film Le petit amour

    Although the story of an older women having a relationship with a 15-years-old boy somehow disturbs me, the cinematography is beautiful. A particular scene where Lucy answered Mary-Jane's question –"what makes a boy better?"– is very interesting.

  • msmichel's rating of the film Le petit amour

    Jane Birkin and Agnes Varda wrote this touching, sympathetic yet somewhat disturbing tale about a love that develops between a 40 year old woman (Birkin) and a 14 year old boy played by Mathieu Demy (Varda's son). While not provocative or controversial the film's conceit still raises an eyebrow especially by current standards. Performances, mostly enacted by the respective Birkin and Varda clans, are authentic.
