Fat Girl (2001)

Overview

Anaïs is twelve and bears the weight of the world on her shoulders. She watches her older sister, Elena, whom she both loves and hates. Elena is fifteen and devilishly beautiful. Neither more futile, nor more stupid than her younger sister, she cannot understand that she is merely an object of desire. And, as such, she can only be taken. Or had. Indeed, this is the subject: a girl's loss of virginity. And, that summer, it opens a door to tragedy.

Fat Girl is a brutal and painful examination of society’s expectations of women, and how women are conditioned to brush off the violent tendencies of men, specifically in regards to sex. It’s hard to watch, and only gets harder as it progresses into a devastating ending. Despite this, it is undeniably a vital watch for those who are comfortable and feel that they can stomach it. Breillat shows herself as not merely a director fascinated with sex, but one with a deep understanding of how women are treated and seen in society, and how this damages girls from youth into adulthood.
