"Definitely, a hard film to make. Ameris did a great job, and so did all the actors. The theme explored is truly sad. I should say that director Ameris deserves a big credit for the treatment of such a complex subject. Two adolescent girls. One quite wild and lonely. The other, shy and under care and love. Both, an explosive mix that becomes the ultimate bomb. A bomb that will reveal the lowest of lowest human nature can go, and, alas, ultimately, the amazing capacity we all have to heal.Set in actual France, the film hangs from one line of text: if I do this for love, it's worth it. I really don't like to spoil anything, so when you approach this film, do it with a big dose of love. Things will get dark, and I mean, really dark. You will find how human nature is always the same, but sometimes, it's simply sad to know that even it's most perfect expression of humaness, love, can be misjudged and faked, to manipulate someone to self-destruction.Thankfully, as I said, Ameris managed to save human dignity in a beautiful yet cold way.The transfer is superb, at least in my european version dvd, so is the soundtrack that takes in all the needed and deserved nuances of audio to this kind of dark and contrastingly bright story. The french is perfect, but spiced with a lot of recent slang that will not be easy for those living outside France nowadays."
