Deep | Chicago Reader


Dutch coming-of-age story (2005) about a brooding 14-year-old heroine (Melody Klaver) whose budding sexuality is overshadowed by her parents' divorce and rapid attachment to new partners. Director Simone van Dusseldorp favors lingering close-ups of the nubile teen, who yearns for a tender love but sparks only lust in the boys she encounters and malice in the gal pal she spurns. Adapting a novel by Hendrickje Spoor, screenwriter Tamara Bos (Hidden Flaws) shows an affinity for the dark passages of adolescence, however tiresome these kids may be. In English and subtitled Danish and French. 83 min.
