Appeared in Library Journal on 2006-07-01:
The striking debut of refreshingly talented Sandrine Bonnaire (Vagabond, Intimate Strangers) is sufficient compensation for the often tedious bickering in this dysfunctional family drama. Director Maurice Pialat (Loulou) also plays the sympathetic father of this rather promiscuous girl, who finds little happiness in her compulsive behavior. Given the double-disc treatment (documentary, interviews, auditions, etc.), this noted film is recommended for larger collections. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
