Look at Me

Finely acted French film about Etienne (Jean-Pierre Bacri), a self-centered, celebrated writer and publisher; his unhappy overweight daughter, Lolita (Marilou Berry), an aspiring classical singer attracted more to the ex-boyfriend who cares little for her than the new one who does; and Sylvia (Agnes Jaoui), the girl's singing teacher, who takes a special interest in the girl mostly to help her writer-husband Pierre (Laurent Grevill) cultivate a friendship with Etienne to advance his career. Writer-director Jaoui's perceptive film -- co-written with co-star Bacri -- says much about youthful angst, fathers and daughters, celebrities and the sycophants who surround them, all in a marvelously real way. Subtitles. A few instances of rough and crude language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
