Twelve-year-old Anais is fat. her sister, fifteen-year-old Elena, is a beauty. While the girls are on vacation with their parents, Anais tags along while Elena explores the dreary seaside town. Elena meets Fernando, an Italian law student; he seduces her with promises of love, and the ever-watchful Anais bears witness to the corruption of her sister's innocence. Not only a portrayal of female adolescent sexuality and the complicated bond between siblings, but also a shocking assertion by Catherine Breillat that violent oppression exists at the core of male-female relations.
