Tomboy by Celine Sciamma (2011)

A beautiful tale of childhood.

Putting aside the main topic of the film; the controversial decision of a girl to introduce herself as a boy, this is aesthetically and stylistically a feast for the eyes.

The world created and presented by Sciamma is a utopian vision of childhood with no cellphones, no internet, no psp games when children hang out in the forest, play football, go swimming and draw portraits of themselves. The parents are perfectly patient and understanding, loving and always there for the kids to teach them to drive, appreciate their input in coversation and simply spend time with them.

Beautiful, lovely story.
