Did Cuties Fail?

TCF Review: Appeased/but FAIL (see definitions)

We live in the era of ‘cancel culture’ and Netflix is once again being targeted for the recently released French film, Mignonnes, or Cuties. Cuties is the directorial debut of Maïmouna Doucouré and the Netflix description is “Eleven-year-old Amy starts to rebel against her conservative family’s traditions when she becomes fascinated with a free-spirited dance crew”.

The movie is an excellent coming-of-age drama EXCEPT that it could have been pulled off without the degree of hyper-sexualization used in the film. No amount of hyper-sexualization feels appropriate but the film itself is about hyper-sexualization. I believe that Emily Nussbaum, a writer for The New Yorker, sums it up in the following tweet posted on Friday, September 11:

CUTIES is a smallscale film about a troubled girl rebelling through a fake hyper-sexualized online persona, then crashing. I didn’t love the dance scenes—they feel doomed to be pulled out of context—but it’s a drag, since the film critiques just what its haters think it supports.

What is good? If one can somehow overlook the sexualized dance scenes and focus on the story, then it is worth the view.

What is bad? It is a statement film but did it go too far sexualizing children? I think the vast majority of people agree that it did which is very unfortunate since the film is otherwise excellent.

İnstagram takipçi satın almak isteyenler bunun vakit içersinde kendi kendine olmasını beklerlerse
hata ederler.
Çünkü takipçi adedi az olan bir hesabı kimse takip
