Bit pointless - Water Lilies review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
02/05/2011

There was no build up or tension, and whatever 'tension' there was seemed to constantly fizzle away with these unlikeable and strange characters.

Very disappointing ending. Not sure if it was intended, but the style is so...dead. Don't bother watching, it doesn't get better.

Superlative movie-making of mesmerising intensity - Water Lilies review by EN

Spoiler Alert
08/09/2017

This is probably Celine Sciamma's best work; entirely from the young protagonist's perspective, it beautifully shows her agonising adolescence and confusing feelings of burgeoning sexuality, infatuation, budding ambition, all those impossible-to-articulate feelings of emerging from childhood into adulthood, very reluctantly yet inevitably. It's a stunning movie, all nuances of feelings and moods, painful and sensuous at the same time, introverted yet perfectly clear, an articulation of feelings that's rarely seen. Absolutely recommended, especially to those interested in the mystery of teenage years.

Water Lilies - Water Lilies review by MT

Spoiler Alert

This film is another great by Celine Sciamma. It is a beautiful, thought provoking film, about the pains of first love and the pressures of fitting in.

She puts so much content in the film, you can really feel the emotions of every character in the film and watching it go through the journey with them.
