The Beautiful Person (2008)

Directed by: Christophe Honoré
Country: France

Plot: Sixteen-year old Junie changes high school mid-year, following the death of her mother. She finds herself in the same class as her cousin Mathias, who introduces her to his friends. All the boys want to date Junie, and she chooses the quietest among them, Otto Cleves. But soon after, she encounters the great love of her life, Nemours, her Italian teacher.
Quick comment: A few flirtations between high school students are shown. In one of them a teacher is involved. Not satisfactory as a whole and with some annoying characters. I found it a bit silly.
Relevant Awards: Best screenplay at Lecce Festival of European Cinema, Italy.
