Junior (France 2011, Julia Ducornau)
A slimy, discombobulating, and weirdly cute fable about puberty from the perspective of a gloriously I-don’t-give-a-fuck teenage girl. Director Julia Ducournau subsequently bewitched everybody with the way more gnarly masterpieces “Raw” (2016) and “Titane” (2021). However, “Junior” almost belongs in the French school of harsh realist depictions of adolescence with its Jean-Pierre Léaud-level performance from Garance Marillier as the titular kid, until things start to mutate . . .
Trouble Every Day (France, Germany, Japan 2001, Claire Denis)
An American couple is honeymooning in Paris. The man behaves strangely; he’s searching for Coré, who has long been unable to quell what he is struggling to repress. In Claire Denis’ early masterpiece, which after more than 20 years was shown in German cinemas for the first time in the spring of 2022, the carnal rises beyond the level of animal instinct to inevitable gory excess.
