Young And Beautiful - 2013 - 6/10
AKA - Jeune et Jolie
Oft told tale of young, pretty student turning tricks for money.
- Never overweight girls with buck teeth and furry legs -
Girl earns €300 - €500 per handjob, bj, bareback, etc … and peddles her wares on Internet sites.
- No mention of AIDS, scuttling crabs, or bright crimson, leaky weenie sores -
Nevertheless, this is a François Ozon film, and I always watch his releases.
Girl is younger than most. 17, not college aged. Her family is affluent, in fact, she doesn’t spend the money on anything. She seems to drift into the game after a boring initiation with German visitor. Subsequent encounters seem little more than ways to kill an afternoon.
She shows business savvy and a sense of her own worth, understanding that youthful flesh is fleeting and valuable.
Luminous Charlotte Rampling has key role near the end.
