Quand on a 17 Ans Reviews:

This is certainly one of the greatest of one of France's nice directors. The cast is perfect, and the two youths beautifully played. Their antagonism at the beginning is not uncommon to those who are still foreigners to their sexuality, and certainly not uncommon to youths far from any centres of so-called gay life. Their attraction is caught by looks that are touching, troubling and moving and the hostility to their own feelings, especially that of Thomas (Corentin Fila ) who lives a more remote life than Damien (Kacey Mottet Klein)who realises his sexual and emotional desires earlier, is perfectly understandable. I will not give away the plot, but mention gotta be made of the subtle and delicate acting of Damien's mother (Sandrine Kiberlain ) and her exquisite variations of emotions. This is the type of movie that raises homosexuality to a fresh lvl in globe cinema, and I hope it reaches the wide audience it needs to raise hope, awareness and respect for a choice of love still a trouble even in France, and yet no another country should have made this movie in quite the same way. Louis Malle's 'Les Amants' which equally showed antipathy between the two lovers was considered a nice breakthrough in portraying sexual love for heterosexuals. This movie equals it in beauty of image, and its wisdom, and it is a crying shame it was not given the Golden Bear at Berlin. A masterpiece.


Bullying normally leads to lasting enmity between the perpetrator and the victim. Only occasionally does it lead to friendship. Rarely does it lead to love, but such is the situation in André Téchiné's ("In the Name of my Daughter") masterful coming of age drama, Being 17 (Quand on a 17 ans), his greatest movie since the 1994 "Wild Reeds." Co-written by director Céline Sciamma ("Girlhood") and set in the Pyrenees Mountains in the South of France, the movie opens with the sight of a lonely man trudging through winding snow-covered mountain streets on his method to school, a adventure partly on foot and partly by bus that takes him an hour and a half every way.The man is Thomas Charpoul (Corentin Fila), a biracial Algerian man of seventeen who has been adopted by a white farming family and whose feeling of alienation from his parents, Jacques (Jean Fornerod, "Polisse") and Christine (Mama Prassinos, "Leaving") carries over to his behavior at school. Usually, one of the last to be picked for a basketball squad in gym class, Tom's anger finds an outlet when he deliberately provokes other classmate Damien Delille (Kacey Mottet Klein, "Keeper"), tripping him as he goes back to his seat after reciting a poem by Rimbaud in front of the class and shoving him to the ground after school.Damien is a tall, slender man who should not be more various than his nemesis. He is a committed student, emotionally stable, and close to his mother Marianne (Sandrine Kiberlain, "Encore Heureux"), the only doctor in the tiny town. As performed by Kiberlain, she is a three-dimensional figure whose warmth and humor light up the screen and the movie is her storyline as well as that of the two boys. Damien's father Nathan (Alexis Loret, "In Harmony"), is an Units pilot who is engaged in an unspecified conflict in the Middle East, but is away from home often and but plays a powerful role in the Damien's life. Not cowed, Damien takes lessons in self defense from family mate Paulo (Jean Corso, "In the Name of my Daughter") and plans to retaliate but circumstances change the dynamics.When Marianne visits Christine to treat her pulmonary infection, she discovers that her patient is pregnant. Unaware of the conflict between the boys, she invites Thomas to stay at their house during his mother's pregnancy so that he can hold up his grades. While on the surface it is a decision that seems contrived except that Marianne has dreams about having an affair with Tom. Though the violence between the men continues even as they share the same house, Damien recognizes fresh feelings when he sees Tom take off his clothes and dive naked into a lake in the middle of winter.Startled by his physical attraction, he says him soon that "I need to know if I'm into guys or just to you," but the respond remains unclear and their homoerotic relationship only develops after an initial period of fear and confusion. What stands out in Being 17 is the naturalness of the two men and the chemistry they have together. This authenticity extends not only to the method they speak to every (neither are very vocal) or look at every another but to their body language even when they are fighting, as if they are satisfied to be receiving the others attention. Not enough can be told about the work of Klein and Fila. Their performances resonate with conviction and make a uniquely moving experience.


This film is the best-directed contemporary gay love storyline I've ever seen. It doesn't over- dramatize the stigma that all gay youth deal with when coming out to themselves and others, but it doesn't pretend such stigma isn't important. It presents attraction and love and friendship and family and desire as the complexly interwoven mess that it everytime is, but is so rarely seen in media. It shows love as not the solution to all your problems, but also that it doesn't have to be tragic. It portrays traditional families charitably, alongside gayness - they don't have to be natural enemies, but they have various dynamics which are usually either ignored or treated one-dimensionally. Most importantly, this movie describes coming out as it really is: a profoundly individual act, and usually played out non- tendentiously and in a narrative fully special to that individual. Most coming out movies I've seen swerve into clichés and predictable outcomes. Although this film's plot resolution is fairly conventional, somehow the characters' authenticity, uniqueness and vulnerability fulfilled the storyline in a deeply touching, yet unsentimental way. Bravo.If you're not gay, you might think this film is nothing special, the method some straight folks I know thought Brokeback Mountain was tripe, not paying any attention to the repression central to that story. The moving qualities in this movie are mostly a coming-out thing, so perhaps straight folks won't relate, but there are glimmers here (and in our times) of that narrative holding enough substance to speak to universal truths.
