A rare, beautiful, and deeply moving film.
This is a coming-of-age film, beautiful and deeply moving, about a young boy discovering love and sexuality. Pascal Sellier plays the young boy Julien, and Mimsy Farmer plays Héléna, his love interest, a sweet and kind-hearted prostitute.
But the question is, can their growing love withstand the obstacles of her madam, her clients, and his parents? There are also complications from his school friends, especially his envious best friend Capo. This film is rare, so if romance is your thing, do whatever you can to find it and view it.
It also has the beautiful young Eva Ionesco playing a small part as Martine, a neighbor who is also his former platonic girlfriend.
