Some years after boldly portraying the budding sexuality of adolescent girls in both A REAL YOUNG GIRL and 36 FILLETTE, director Catherine Breillat dares to go even younger with FAT GIRL. Anaïs, a pudgy twelve year old, bears witness to her fifteen year old sister Elena as she starts to explore the power of her sultry looks over men. The two spar and then cuddle as sisters are prone to do, and share their very different ideas on sex, with the somehow already jaded Anaïs convinced she must lose her virginity in a completely loveless way. The movie echoes that unromantic worldview, with a prolonged sex scene mostly witnessed through the eyes of Anaïs. Lurid and full of surprises, FAT GIRL is a singular vision of violence in sex.
