A Real Young Girl ★ 1975

Breillat's explicit film was never commercially released—being too weird even for French cinema (at least at the time). It deals with the budding sexuality of the teenaged Alice (Alexandra) during her summer vacation as she becomes infatuated with Jim (Keller), a hunky laborer at her father's saw mill. Based on the director's novel “Le Soupirail” (“The Air Duct”). In French with subtitles. 93m/C VHS, DVD . FR Charlotta Alexandra, Hiram Keller, Rita Meiden, Bruno Balp, Shirley Stoler; D: Catherine Breillat; W: Catherine Breillat; C: Pierre Fattori; M: Mort Shuman.
