Water Lilies (2007)

Céline Sciamma directs Pauline Acquart, Louise Blachère and Adèle Haenel in this teen romance where a French girl become obsessed with the statuesque beauty on the local synchronised swimming team.

Pretty basic calling card debut – looks good with a nice mix of yearning, warmth and goofiness. Not world changing but probably means a lot to young lesbians now attaching themselves to it. I guess we can all appreciate the slightly deranged lengths teens go to engineer interactions and intimacy with those they fancy, some neat humour comes from this.
