What are we talking about ? Of this ambient mediocrity which imposes bodily normality to be consistent with friends!
Humiliating humor that glides in all perversity in the conversation between adolescents of the same college! We’re taking the big flu. The good pear, which also has another handicap: that of being at the top of its class. A sad bonhomie which bubbles up at the approach of the college party. Be 14 years old! perhaps the worst of ages. So goes the life of Juliette trapped between an absent but conciliatory father (the honesty of a life can kill ambition) and an idolized mother living in New York. Cold and false feeling, disappointing. Only one big friend Léanne, too tender. In search of female affection, the choice will disturb Juliette at first. Another Juliette relationship: a gifted youngster, also aloof, of whom she is the nanny in her spare time. This is how life goes when the standard is not there. A disparate trio that will fill, by the will of each of the three, the last image of the film. Like a Fordian breath. This is not another movie about teenagers. Jeune Juliette is an adult work, a description with nuances and pictorial touches in its sensitivity. With this film, her fourth, the director Anne Emond, guides us on the steps of tolerance of the other. The diversity could have been different. Identity. It is not so. Complementary is the right word. To discover because it gives fishing. And it’s not the least of its qualities
