Beau Pere | Chicago Reader

Beau Pere

A variant on the Lolita myth by Bertrand Blier (Get Out Your Handkerchiefs), with Patrick Dewaere as a philosophical nightclub pianist who finds himself with an amorous 14-year-old (Ariel Besse) on his hands. Though the film has a disturbing tendency to lay all the sexual aggression off on the girl (thus taking the male off the hook), it has enough of Blier's customary taboo-busting vigor to provide a reasonably unsettling good time. Dewaere's performance is one of his last and one of his best. With Nicole Garcia and Nathalie Baye (1981).
