Описание: Лето, море, каникулы, родители, первая любовь. Анаис и ее старшая сестра Елена ни в чем не похожи друг на друга. Анаис - пухленькая и умненькая. Елена дьявольски красива в свои 15 лет. Это возраст первого сексуального опыта. Анаис постигает эти азы наблюдая за сестрой. Последний скандальный фильм Катрин Брейя ( "Романс"), названный в Америке "Толстушка" с неожиданным шокирующим концом , расхваленный критиками.
Рецензии: I was amused - or should have been - when Anaпs complained that Elena and Fernando's canoodling was keeping her awake. It was having the opposite effect on me. That scene, in which Fernando uses every dodgy teen-on-teen seduction line in the book (one gets the impression that he's quoting verbatim FROM the book) goes on FOREVER, while half the audience is dozing off and the other half is silently screaming at the screen: "Conclude! Cut! Develop! Show some life! Do SOMETHING!" The entire movie has this quality, to some degree.
About the ending (you have been warned)...
I admire the honesty of an earlier commenter, who said she didn't understand the ending but that it was obviously foreshadowed by Anaпs's earlier fantasies - although she was wrong to suppose that this meant it wasn't an arbitrary shocked tactic employed by Breillat out of desperation. Anaпs's words forty minutes earlier themselves have the feeling of having been retrospectively edited into the script in order to "justify" the sudden violence at the end. I, too, realised instantly that the murderous rapist was, in a monkey's paw kind of way, exactly what Anaпs wanted - but I still found myself scratching my head after the abrupt conclusion and saying: "Huh?" And really, what WAS the point of the violence, apart from the fact that it broke the preceding 87 minutes of repellent tedium? For that matter, what was the point of the 87 minutes of repellent tedium?
