The Little Thief (La petite voleuse)

France 1988

Details imdb

Seen 6 May 2012

Maybe she is incorrigible?

IMDB 6.9/10
Rotten Tomatoes Audience 71% liked it
This is one example of the adage that appropriate casting plays an important role in a film. Charlotte Gainsbourg seems made for the role of the many faceted girl who blossoms into a woman. That in itself gives the film a 7.0/10

My impressions:

Is it an inborn trait
Or is it the circumstances
Does anyone care?

When someone does take an interest
She tries to change
Until she meets her soul mate
Someone who speaks the same language
Who is much more of the same mould
They are on the same wavelength
And together supposed to soar
Becoming stars in their own constellation

The time that seems fated
They part ways

She realises
She understands
Life is what you make of it
She will take the bull by its horns
