Tomboy (2011)

Directed by: Celine Sciamma
Country: France

Plot: A 10-year-old girl, settling into her new neighborhood outside Paris, is mistaken for a boy and has to live up to this new identity since it's too late for the mistake to be clarified.
Quick comment: Sexuality theme is depicted with strong personality by Sciamma. It was like this with “water lilies”(2007) and it is now with “tomboy”. Although the strong performances and eminent tension involved, there were a few staged situations (including the end) which did not enhance the final result. Curious enough to worth a look regardless the final impression that could have been better explored.
Relevant Awards: Jury award at Berlin Film Fest.(Germany).
