    Hittman's debut isn't just a brilliantly tactile study of the mounting sexual curiosity and frustration of 14-year-old Lila (Gina Piersanti); it's also an important landmark in the oft-ignored subgenre of realistic movies about female adolescence.

    A mood poem to summer loving and sexual awakening, It Felt Like Love powerfully evokes a time when flesh is paramount, and peer behavior is the standard by which we judge our own.

    Eliza Hittman's film captures the exclusive properties of sex with a degree of intimacy and empathy that, at times, feels authentically revelatory.

I just think there's so so much waste potential... I was really interested in Chiara and Lila's relationship and I'd like to learn more about them... The acting is good, but I don't like the fact that there aren't many dialogues. Full Review »

    This movie is boring and very slow. A few times during the movie I was about to stop watching it.
    The main actress (Lila) plays well. Most of the other actors plays ok as well.
    They is very little dialog (that may be a good thing).
    Unfortunately the script is not very plausible.
    Examples: Her friendship with Chiara who is probably 2 years older;
    The scene where she set the alarm clock forward; the scene were she goes to the apartment of the 3 guys.
    The cameraman tries to give the film an "artistic" look with some nice close-ups but I did not care too much for many of the hazy/smoky scenes.
    The movies ends abruptly.
    All in all, don't waste your time.
