Francois Ozon’s (In the House, Swimming Pool) coming-of-age story is a stunning portrayal of a 17 year old girls journey of sexual discovery. After a disappointing summer romance in the south of France, Isabelle returns to Paris, where she sets up a website to accept appointments for sex in chic hotel rooms. She is a cool professional. But this does not mean she’s immune to the effects of the sexual whims of and occasional rough treatment from men. It is only with one regular client that she allows herself to experience any pleasure until she is forced to deal with the consequences of her decisions. Presented over the course of four seasons, Ozon’s film provides an unprejudiced glimpse into the adolescent female psyche.
