Jeune et Jolie
François Ozon returns with the provocative story a 17-year-old student on an unexpected journey of sexual self-discovery.
With a sly nod to Buñuel’s Belle de jour, François Ozon returns with the story of Isabelle, a 17-year-old student on an unexpected journey of sexual self-discovery. After losing her virginity during a brief holiday romance, Isabelle returns home and, over the course of the following year, embarks on a secret life of prostitution. In many ways an extension of his mischievous In The House, Jeune et jolie continues to explore the effects of rebellious teenage behaviour on the moral ideologies of the bourgeois family. Aided by a star-making turn from model Marine Vacth as the adolescent provocateur, Ozon’s unsensational approach perfectly compliments the youthful irreverence of his main character, while leaving audiences to come to their own moral conclusions.
