A sisterhood both powerful and bitter / 'Fat Girl' an extraordinary inquiry into sex
Young love is idealized as sweet romance, but early sexual experiences are often painful and clumsy and based on lies. It is not merely that a boy will tell a girl almost anything to get her into bed, but that a girl will pretend to believe almost anything, because she is curious, too. The movie was written and directed by Catherine Breillat , a French woman who is fascinated by the physical and psychological details of sex. Her characters may talk of love, but they rarely feel it and are not necessarily looking for it: Her women, as well as men, have a frank curiosity about what they can do--and what can be done--with their bodies. It is like life, which has a way of interrupting our plans with its tragic priorities.
