The purpose of the bathtub scene was to "surprisingly" reveal that the main character was actually a girl. BUT with a name like "Tomboy," that was already given away. If people don't know the meaning of the word, the surprise and earlier scenes would've been more relevant.
Rating: Unrated. If I were to rate the movie I would give it a PG rating just for some brief nudity. Language: French with English Subs.
I am not normally captivated by the typical coming-of-age movie, but this one is not typical. The main character is a ten-year-old girl, who spends the summer passing off as a boy. Throughout the movie, through her antics and tricks to maintain the lie, I was on the edge of my seat fearing that she would be discovered. At first, maintaining the lie was easy. As the plot progressed, events start to put the main character into situations that could potentially expose her secret. Early on, "Michael" is invited to play ball with the other boys. One team would wear shirts, the other team will go shirtless. Michael pulls off her shirt and proceeds to join the game. Thankfully, Michael/Laure still has a nearly-flat, athletic body that could pass for a boy. She passed this test with flying colors.
Adding complications to the plot is the one girl among the group. Being slightly more mature than the boys around them, this one starts to crush on Michael/Laure, not knowing that he, in fact, is a she. Again, I was anxious throughout and feared for Michael. I kept hoping that Michael and her family would just move away to keep her from having to face the humiliation of being discovered. This is the sort of thing that could prove very embarrassing for a child and really, her whole family. Yes, Laure was irresponsible for lying. Yes, it was a stupid, bone-headed thing to do. But haven't we all done something dumb as a child? I wanted her to be spared from the consequences of her actions.
As the story moves along, it becomes harder and harder to maintain the lie. Michael gets invited to go to the lake with the gang. In order to pull off the deception, Michael goes home and alters her bikini bottoms to make it look like a pair of boy's speedo, complete with an ingenious little prosthetic for added measure! At the lake, one of the more aggressive boys challenges Michael to a wrestling match. Taller and more athletic, Michael wins by knocking the other boy into the water. Again, she passes the test. In a pair of speedos, Michael looked like a tall, athletic boy. If you do not suspect it initially, then you would probably also be deceived. She looks a little too pretty to be a boy, and there is just the second Tanner stage of a breast bud coming out. But even so, I can see how the deception would work.
Eventually, her deception is compromised. Her mother, understandably furious, forces her to confess to one of the mothers. Rumor got around the playground. The other boys take Michael to the woods, intending to pull her pants down. It was at this point that it became hard for me to watch, dreading the potential humiliation for the main character. In any case, I will stop here and not spoil it for you.
This is not a high-stakes movie plot in which the main character is out to save millions of lives. Where failure could mean the destruction of all civilized life on the planet. Let's be real. This is a movie about a little girl passing off as a boy. In the bigger scheme of things, it is nothing. Nevertheless, the fear that you have, the empathy that you have, for the character will keep you on the edge of your seat.
The main character was played by Zoe Heran. Terrific young actress. And she is young enough to have the kind of athletic body that made it possible to pass for a boy. At the start of the movie, even the viewer is not quite so sure of her gender. It was not until a bathroom scene when she proceeds to step out of the bath tub that her gender was confirmed. By then, she had already started the deception and was passing herself off as "Michael".
This is a highly recommended movie.
The casting of the main character was excellent. I believe with the proper hair style, clothing, etc. she would be a lovely girl, but with the short hair and boys clothing she passes as a skinny boy who might be considered slightly effeminate but not enough to give her away. I have seen boys who acted more effeminate, but they also got kidded by the other boys for acting effeminate. During the movie the other children never make fun of Mickael for acting slightly effeminate, I suspect that the director did not want to bring attention to this slight imperfection in her acting (meaning the character's acting not the actress' acting, it was perfect for the character.)
Overall I liked the movie, I do however have two minor criticisms: There is a thirty second clip included in the "behind the scenes featurette" which appears to be a continuation of the final scene of the movie. I would have left it on the final scene if I had been editing the movie. My other criticism might be considered a slight spoiler. At one point while she is playing shirtless with the boys her panties are clearly visible above her shorts but none of the boys seem to notice that "he" is wearing girls underwear. The other boys might have overlooked her slight effeminate behavior, considering how slight it was, but wearing girls underwear is something else altogether.
