Yet more flat froth seeping from the Continental cinematic shitheap depicts how the inhibition of a timid teen (Rigot) relaxes under the influence of her fractious, licentious neighbor (Bastien). Lehericey purveys cliches exclusively: demure defloration, private and prolonged masturbation, inebriate romps, skinny dipping, transient sex, Bastien's recusant revealed as a promising pianist, an exuberant, extemporaneous dance on a balcony and a few inane, impotent rebellions only stress a wearisome vacuity. Balding, barbate Perez is still sexier than either of the lovely leads as Rigot's single father, but even his eventual surrender to Bastien's enticement isn't particularly prurient. Before Lehericey's amateurish elaboration of adolescent banalities, promiscuity and ephebophilia never seemed so stodgy.
Instead, watch 36 fillette.
