Being one of the contemporary French filmmakers, François Ozon is known for his interest in the psyche of women. With his “Young and Beautiful, he deals with a taboo subject, to make an incomplete portrait of a young teenager who, while discovering her sexuality, learns to turn herself into a different version for her emotional and financial satisfaction.
For Isabelle who is the main lead actress of the story, prostitution becomes a kind of self-discovery trip on her way to adulthood. But François Ozon leaves it up to the viewer to find out exactly what drives Isabelle to do what she does.
Admittedly, the film lets itself be seen with a certain pleasure and allows Ozon to reveal the talent of Marine Vacht as Isabelle, but unfortunately, it misses a bit of its subject, so you might end up wondering what really interests him.
As we pointed out before, Marine Vacth is the star of this movie. It is capable of transmitting the feeling of not knowing very well what to do with your life at that age and give different alternatives to what is usually knowns as the problems of youth.
In summary, “Young and Beautiful” seems like the typical film for film critics, but it can be enjoyed without any problem. So 6.5 would be not bad for this.
