Plot Outline:

Ten-year-old Laura moves to new neighborhood outside Paris with her younger sister, and in order to make new friends she decides to pass herself off as a boy, Michaël. While it seems like a great idea, she is soon digging herself in a hole when she becomes close to another girl, Lisa, who does not know her secret. -- Chris Kavan

Rating of

Filmed on a shoe-string budget with mostly child actors, this French film none-the-less makes an impression. The story is simple: a young girl pretends to be a boy when moving to a new neighborhood for the summer, knowing that school will start and the secret revealed. It feels genuine with a lesson about gender identity everyone can take away.
