Description Three girls, each about 15, deal with puberty, the onset of sexual attraction, and, for two, the pressure of virginity. Marie, who's slight and diffident, quiet and nearly expressionless, is friends with Anne, who's a bit chunky and impulsive and has decided that François will be her first love. Watching synchronized swimming, Marie is suddenly attracted to the team captain, Floriane, beautiful, aloof, tall, and rumored to be a slut. François pursues her. Marie begins to hang around her; they trade favors, and soon it's an odd sort of friendship. Each of the three experiences her own first, and Marie must sort out attraction and friendship.

    Found this movie ages ago. Glad I've reminded myself of what it's called - might be good to watch it again when I ain't half asleep through it all x.X

    I don't really like watching films with subtitles and can't speak French but I like to listen to that language so watched this last night. Anyway I thought it was good, a bit sick and I didn't really understand the ending but OK. And @Matrioschka I think I can remember when this happened to me, I'm not gay but when I was about 12 I think I remember looking at a friend and neighbour(a boy a bit older =/) in a strange way. Maybe it's the time in life when someone 'comes out of the closet' or not?

    I love love love love love this movie---Im a huge fan of foreign film and this was completely captivating, strong and completely mesmerizing. .. the end of the trailer is what really hurts me though, she's there waiting for a kiss and nothing, so sad. :( but the overall movie is awesome XD

    @bonitachika792 I didn't think that was sexual... I thought she was pointing her foot whilst in the shower... Get your head out of the gutter!

    I like how they showed the part where Marie foots is up implying that was a sexual scene when it really wasn't at all.
