||Synopsis: A family moves into a new neighborhood, and a 10-year-old named Laure deliberately presents as a boy named Mikhael to the neighborhood children. It is heavily implied that Mikhael is a closeted transgender boy. This film follows his experiences with his newfound friends, his potential love interest, Lisa, his younger sister and his parents. It focuses in on the significance of gender identity in social interaction from an early age, the difficulties of being transgender and young, and how Mikhael navigates these in the background of childhood play and love.

This small independent film was made for peanuts (Filmed on a Canon 5D
and just a handful of people in the crew) and it is probably unlikely
to make any big impact on the box-office. However I'm sure it'll leave
a mark on those few who will actually manage to see it.
Zoé Héran is absolutely wonderful as Laure, the 10 years old girl who's
just moved into a new neighbourhood where nobody knows her and pretends
to be a boy (Michaël) with her new friends. Her performance is one of
the best of the year, and possibly among the best ever performances by
a child: she not only perfectly captures that innocence that children
of that age have, but at the same time she seems to have a deep
understanding of the struggle and the pain of her character. Throughout
the film she really acts as if she was a real boy in a way that's so
believable that at some point I really started to wonder whether "she"
was actually a real "he". The film knows that and it does play with you
by stretching the lie as far as it possibly can, until it decides to
show you the real truth in a beautifully handled scene where you do
actually see briefly the girl naked. It's a fleeting moment and the
film obviously doesn't linger on it, but it's enough to put our minds
at rest so that we can carry on enjoying the rest of the story.
The director Céline Sciamma's ability to film children making it look
real is incredible. It feels effortless as if the camera was one of the
children themselves and we as the audience are left observing them
playing in the forest as if we were spying on them, or as if it was all
a documentary. Rarely I have seen scenes with such young children that
feel so honest and real: the approach is subtle and light, the
atmosphere is almost muted, dialogue to advance the story is used to a
minimum and the silences are charges with meaning and intensity. This
is a subject that rarely makes the news, let alone the movie theatres.
And it's so refreshing not just to see it depicted in this film, but to
have it told with such an understanding, honesty and open-mindedness.
All this together with the stellar acting from little Zoé make the
internal drama of Laure/Michaël even more poignant and powerful. Be
warned, this is a slow film (a very short one too at only 82 minutes),
that has "French independent" written all over it, from its pace, to
its rough look and its lack of music score, but if you, like me, love
films about children growing up, this sensitive, tender and never
heavy- handed story might just melt your heart too.
I saw it months ago and I still remember it vividly, so it must have
worked on me.
