This is a solid adaptation of Joseph Joffo's memoirs, directed by Jacques Doillon, who was known for his films of childhood and adolescence and in particular made several films of interest to fans of girl actors, the best of which are La drôlesse, La vie de famille and Ponette. La fille de 15 ans is worth a look as well, though, like Beau-Père, it suffers from the familiar French-cinema problem of attributing an implausible emotional sophistication to its young characters; a similar situation is much better handled in Peppermint Soda, Girls Can't Swim and Fish Tank.My Movie Rating: 8 / 10
