A boy (Martin Loeb) and girl (Lara Wendel) in their early teens use each other to psychically explore their budding sexuality. Things get complicated when another lass (Eva Ionesco) enters the picture, our young hero drawn to this beauty and his old friend now a bit ignored. As the tension between the three builds, cruel games are used to express complex emotions; might someone get hurt before it is all over? An outstanding, realistic look at this developmental stage which does not shy away from the passions and confusions of puberty. The three youngsters are the complete cast; the movie is mostly filmed in a picturesque forest. This was Wendel's debut. Recommended, even if you don't speak a word of Italian.
