At age 17, Eglantine is troubled by a number of things. Her argumentative parents comprise an absentee and philandering father and an overprotective, occasionally alcoholic mother. Her boyfriend Sébastien is a couple of years older; he's ready, but she isn't. Frequent furtive visits to her therapist help her to see that these issues are not 'problems', but 'difficulties', which she has the strength to overcome. Written by David Carless

Realistic and Entertaining Psychotherapy in Film
24 February 2008 | by DrNancyKalishSee all my reviews

I love this movie. It is one of the most realistic and ethical depictions of a psychotherapist, and the process of brief therapy, in film; for this reason, it was nominated for an award by the Media Watch Committee of the American Psychological Association. The depictions of the teenagers and their concerns are also realistic, funny, and tender. The film has a beautiful, memorable soundtrack; the photography is equally beautiful. Oui, Mais is a film I show in my Psychological Issues in Film graduate classes, and I look forward to seeing it each time. Anyone who is interested in psychotherapy or adolescents - or anyone who simply wants to see a charming film - should see Oui, Mais.
