Puppylove * Delphine Lehericey (2013)

IMDb.comWhen this film came out I read that the soundtrack was made by ‘riot grrl’ band Soldout. Curious what film Soldout would lend their name to and what director would have Soldout for the music, the film came on my wishlist. It took two years before the film was made available on DVD. “Puppylove” proves to be a nothing-new coming-of-age film, but not a bad one.

We mostly follow the adolescent Diane who lives with her father and little brother. When Julia comes to live next door, the two get along well. Julia is slighly older and very sexually active, thus speeding up Diane’s adolescence.

The story is nothing that we have never seen and the music is just nice, but like I said, “Puppylove” is an alright film about youth.

Nicholas Winding weekend

Last weekend I have rewatched both “Drive” (2011) and “Only God Forgives” (2013). The films are very similar, yet very different. Both have Ryan Gosling as poker-faced main character. In both films Goslings character is involved in illegal activities, but does not really seem to want to. Of course, both films are slow and minimalistic. [...]

No blog

A “blog” with one entry every two years, that is quite cool, is it not?

It has been a couple of years since I added “blogs” to the different sections so I could share information other than reviews. Looking back, I am not entirely sure what kind of information I had in mind. I [...]

Fantasy bombast

During two airplaneflights I have killed some time watching to fantasy spectacles. First the lauded “Avatar”, second the first “Hobbit”. I did not expect “Avatar” to be some sort of “Matrix”, but the famous blue characters inhabit some sort of ‘inbetweenworld’ that men can only come using some sort of machine. The film is an [...]
