Outstanding film, full of insight into the nature of female boarding schools and their existance as a mechanism for sustaining and instilling class and gender distinctions in modern society, beautifully and powerfully shot, this is an Outstanding film, full of insight into the nature of female boarding schools and their existance as a mechanism for sustaining and instilling class and gender distinctions in modern society, beautifully and powerfully shot, this is an enlightening film!

Esthetically beautiful, mysterious, dark, strangely attractive, full of symbolism and poetry, this is also one of the most disappointing movies I have ever seen in my life: a beautiful empty and hollow shell.

The whole film is a very clever metaphor for coming of age.

Don't watch this film. It's 2 hours of your life that you'll never get back. Through the whole film I kept expecting something to happen and absolutly NOTHING does. What a waste of time!

This was a complete waste of time. I can't imagine anyone would enjoy this fecal matter dressed up in a tutu unless they were pedophiles and simply enjoyed watching exploitation of children.

I can't imagine anyone would enjoy this fecal matter dressed up in a tutu unless they were pedophiles and simply enjoyed watching exploitation of children. There is no point to this movie, and I've seen deeper meaning in the splatter of vomit on a bar floor. At least that can be interpreted as modern abstract expressionist art like a Jackson Pollock. If there exists such a place as this French boarding school, then it should be raided by Interpol to combat human trafficking. Expand

An extremely interesting film that makes you think. Strange, yes, weird yes, but you will have the plot going round in your head for ever and then probably never understand it.
