She (Chiara Soligo-Hudson) was Pierre's (Bennett Taylor) one true love,
but she has made out with of all people his friend Trey (Trevor Adolf) -
so will Pierre just regard it as some failed high school romance, will he
take her back (as she pleads him to), or will he make the ultimate
sacrifice for his love?
Deep Cove: Les Adolescents is an
interesting experiment in filmmaking, insasmuch as it, in a mere 7 or so
minutes, takes the the basic ingredients of your run-of-the-mill high
school romance and gives them the nouvelle vague/arthouse treatment
(including black and white and subtitles), with the two genres
interchanging, in a sometimes suitably ironic way ... but admittedly the
genres not always blend or clash as well as they should to develop this to
full capacity. That said, the film is still fun to watch and shows an
entirely promising filmmaker ... who just hasn't turned out his best film
with this one.
