  1. Succeeds by never tipping its hand or losing its equilibrium while its characters often seem to be doing nothing but.
  2. 75
    Brutal and devastating.
  3. Frank, sympathetic approach to the awkward age.
  4. 70
    A considerably more unsettling tale of one-sided amour fou, reportedly inspired by an actual case of teenage prostitution, Jean-Pierre Améris's Bad Company puts the coy prurience of American high school films in brutal perspective.
  5. Reviewed by: David D'Arcy

    The nuanced performances by Maud Forget and Lou Doillon help give Bad Company its extraordinary credibility.
  6. If you're not in the mood for explicit discussions (and occasional depictions) of the sex life of French adolescents, close your eyes.
