YOUNG AND BEAUTIFUL

DIRECTOR: François Ozon - FRANCE

Ozon again delves into the mysterious world of the female soul in this story of 17-year-old Isabelle, who has her first sexual encounter at a resort in southern France—an episode that is just the beginning for this sexually inquisitive girl in search of rebellion. After returning to Paris, she begins to earn money through encounters with various older men. Her mother and stepfather give Isabelle absolute freedom and have no idea of her secret activities. Yet everything changes when a routine call ends in disaster, and the police and a psychologist become involved.... Over the course of four seasons and with four songs, Ozon creates a mysterious teenage version of Buñuel’s Belle de Jour—“A fascinating contemplation of adolescent sexuality that will be a star-making platform for its young lead, Marine Vacth.”—The Hollywood Reporter. (95 mins.)

Filmography: Under the Sand (00), 8 Women (02), Swimming Pool (03), Potiche (10), In the House (12).

Sponsored by the Consulate General of France and French American Cultural Society, San Francisco, and TV5Monde.
