Life Doesn't Scare Me

This 1999 coming-of-age drama follows four girls from high school to college in the Paris of the late 70s and early 80s, painting an affectionate portrait of their lives together. Their backgrounds and personalities differ markedly, yet their friendship survives family turmoil, academic setbacks, and boy troubles. As in the harrowing Forget Me, director Noemie Lvovsky coaxes powerful performances from her actresses (Magali Woch, Ingrid Molinier, Julie-Marie Parmentier, and Camille Rousselet), and her dead-on re-creation of the 70s is greatly enhanced by Bruno Fontaine's selection and arrangement of period songs. 111 min.
