Cast & Crew
Four teenage girls are best friends, living in their enclosed world of adolescent friendship, and trying to deal with the impingment of adult issues. Emilie is self-conscious about her weight, and is bullied by other students; Stella is more confident; while Marion is shy and Ines, a Spanish immigrant, must deal with life as a foreigner. They deal with some unstable parents, problems at school, and gradually discover their sexualities, and begin to look for boyfriends.
Director Noemie Lvovsky later expanded upon the story of these four main charcters in "La Vie Ne Me Fait Pas Peur" (France/1999), which contains footage shot for "Petites."
Shown at Turin Film Festival (in competition) November 20-29, 1998.
