Lea Seydoux is the beautiful person in this film about (high-school?) students, their messy love triangles, and the teachers that want to sleep with them. The film’s muted and melancholy look, its well timed use of Nick Drake songs and its incessantly brooding characters might have you convinced that this is a deep and insightful drama about the pain of young love. But don’t be fooled, each of its seemingly complex characters soon reveal themselves to be nothing more than attractively mousy automata, capable of movement only in predetermined patterns. It’s like some mad scientist threw them all together in an Lord-of-the-Flies-type experiment to see who would come out least depressed. Watchable, but nothing special.
