- Jeune Femme review by KB
Can't find anything to fault here .Would give it 3 & a 1/2 .Not too long.Wasn't sure about it for the first 15 minutes but it gets gradually better & more absorbing as it goes on.

- Jeune Femme review by Alphaville
This slice-of-life drama about a 31yo woman (hardly ‘jeune’) opens with her having a rant after being dumped by her boyfriend. Then she wanders the streets with a cat and smokes a lot. And so on. Filmed with a soap-opera aesthetic, it’s a poor advert for modern French cinema. Watch the trailer first to see what you’re in for, then do something more interesting than watching the whole sorry mess, like doing the washing –up. The DVD also has a similar 40min timewaster by the same director – Leonor Serraille. It’s a name to avoid.

Moder French cinema at its best
- Jeune Femme review by TE
A magnetic performance by Laetitia Dosch in the lead role here. The film has warmth and positive energy throughout in its depiction of the struggles of a passionate young woman trying to set up a new life after the end of an affair.
The narrative flows beautifully between the implications of the past and the challenges of the present.
This is another example of the increasing number of good contemporary films directed by women, with strong female lead stories to tell.
