Description du produit
Set in the competitive world of synchronised swimming, WATER LILIES is a brilliantly observed portrait of female adolescence. The film centres around three 15-year-old-girls who experience first love in very different ways. WATER LILIES is the directorial debut of twenty-seven year-old Céline Sciamma and stars newcomers Pauline Acquart, Louise Blachère, Adèle Haenel and Warren Jacquin. Premiering at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival in Un Certain Regard, Sciamma and her young cast were widely hailed as among the most talented newcomers to emerge from the festival. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition DVD.

Almost all French films are dialog heavy. The directors & screenwriters talk the audience to sleep. French story lines are built around endless chit-chat. Also, most French film makers when dealing with drama, eliminate all bright colors -- they feel that it distracts the audience from the seriousness of the characters talking. Now, along comes Water Lilies.
Not only do the actors rarely talk, when they do -- it is short and to the point. Beautifully filmed in rich bright colors, this movie is a visual experience. You watch the plot unfold, you don't listen to it unfold. You immediately understand that it is teenage love story, filled with brief moments of joy and long moments of disappointment. The story is told through a multitude of facial close-ups -- you can see what each girl is thinking, feeling.
And in the end, the main girl (age 12?) understands that what she was experiencing for a 16 yr old girl was not "love", but infatuation and that friendship is stronger than infatuation. And how is this revealed? Not through a long dissertation on what she has learned during the course of the movie, but by her being filmed alone at night next to an indoor swimming pool, and after a few moments of silence and reflection, jumping into the water.
The immediate next scene when her older friend joins her, ties a pretty bow around the meaning and end of the film.
Those two friends are the beautiful Water Lilies.
