  • Water Lilies 2007

    ★★★★ Rewatched 01 Nov, 2014

    Still a powerful tale about puberty and dealing with the pressure of attraction. Sciamma manages to view the topic from the girls' point of view, unlike most adult film makers of coming of age-films. And water ballet as a metaphor for puberty is still a stroke of genius: struggling hard with arms and legs below the surface to maintain beauty and self control above.

    - I have to ask you something. It's not a normal question.
    - What does it matter if it's not normal?
    (or something similiar, it's translated from French)

    Happy 40th, Joaquin Phoenix. Interesting love drama with Phoenix scaringly authentic as a depressed man recently heartbroken from his coming wife behalde of mental problems, disappearing into character as usual.
