The family vacation of fifteen-year-old Elena (Mesquida) and 12-year-old Anais (Reboux) and their parents provides French feminist auteur Breillat (36 Fillette, Romance) with another disconcerting exploration of female sexuality. Inspired by a newspaper report of a family tragedy, Breillat has crafted an impressively acted film, frank and discomforting to the viewer, which dismantles the cosy assumptions of the teenage summer romance movie.
