POLL 23: YOUNG GIRLS

Filed under: Uncategorized — celinejulie @ 11:43 pm

This is about a poll in my bilingual blog: http://celinejulie.blogspot.com

 

 

My poll 23 is inspired by three films I love and saw in May: JUNO, MIDNIGHT RAINBOW, and DEK JOE. These three films are about female teenagers. So I think I should make a list of my favorite films about female teenagers.

I LOVE THESE FILMS ABOUT YOUNG GIRLS VERY MUCH. WHICH FILMS DO YOU LIKE?

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0388311/

17.VANAJA (2006, Rajnesh Domalpalli, India)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0832971/

18.VIOLET PERFUME: NOBODY HEARS YOU (2001, Marisa Sistach, Mexico)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0280015/

19.WINNING LONDON (2001, Craig Shapiro, USA)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0272360/

20.WISH YOU WERE HERE (1987, David Leland, UK)

You can cast multiple votes.

SPOILERS: When I say these films are about female teenagers, I don’t mean that the main topic of the films is female teenagers. In the case of MIDNIGHT RAINBOW, the female teenager in the film is actually “a state of mind” of a brutal female serial killer. In the case of DEK JOE, I’m not 100 % sure that the protagonist of the film is actually a boy or girl, but from my first viewing, I guess the protagonist is a girl who is a psychotic murderer.

  1. This is my reply to Renegade Eye in my bilingual blog:

    I like MEAN GIRLS (A-) a lot, and I think it should be screened together with HEATHERS (1989, Michael Lehmann, A+).

    I haven’t seen CHARLIE BARTLETT (2007, Jon Poll), but it sounds interesting. I like Anton Yelchin very much when he starred in HOUSE OF D (2004, David Duchovny, B+).

    Another favorite American film about teenagers is PRETTY PERSUASION (2005, Marcos Siega).
