Water Lilies Trailer

Oh those French… Screw Meet Dave, watch this trailer for Water Lilies (Naissance Des Pieuvres) instead! This borders on the edge of being NSFW, but thankfully it's an MPAA approved trailer which means you can watch it. I'd love some explanation for this, but instead I think I'll just sit back and enjoy - but watch out, the girls are very young. One summer, three fifteen-year-old girls--Marie, Anne and Floriane--share secrets in the girl's locker room. Desire erupts. They will never be able to forget their first time. Those French really know how to pull off some intriguing sexual dramas, that's for sure. Interested?

If you still need a reason to get interested in this, it currently has a 100% on Rotten Tomatoes with 15 reviews. "Well observed and painfully accurate in its depiction of the agonies of growing up, this is a small triumph." From Daily Mirror.

Well then Herbert, I guess this isn't the movie for you. Lol. All joking aside though, this movie doesn't seem compelling. The girl on girl action is all it has going for it. For that I'd rather just watch a porno. . .

Ooo la la

What is the music playing during the trailer?

John on Mar 25, 2008


Its a trap!!!

coyo on Mar 25, 2008


Mel ... the movie doesn't seem compelling? You're basing this on ... what exactly? You can only assume what the film is about but knowing the French ... it's probably hardly as simple as it appears. The fact that you're already comparing the film to a porno is pretty short sighted. That said ... Teenage love and desire and development is always good for a trainwreck. Pain, confusion, and synchronized swimming .... hmmmm .... I want to know, if anything, how to pull that off. *grin* I have a very clear feeling from the trailer that the "girl on girl" is hardly the point. As coyo and Princess Leia once said, indeed ... it's a trap. 🙂

Ok...I felt dirty watching that trailer. Yeah. Dirty. *clicks play again*

Xoriat on Mar 25, 2008


Chris Hanson will be waiting for you outside of theaters

Alex what pedophilia site did you find this on? Not that i want to know. This doesnt look good at all and borders on being innappropriate. I would never normally say this but thank god it wasnt a red band trailler.

Heckle on Mar 25, 2008


I didn't think the trailer was that provacative. However, those girls were *totally* not 18 and thus, it's a little disturbing to see you lusting after them.

John on Mar 25, 2008


HAHAHAHAA... love these posts... but everyone already posted with the same sarcastic remarks I was going to. This looks interesting though, and while I sound like a dirty ol fart talkin about it, I will be intrigued to see how the actresses pull it off... cause trainwrecks(E #6) are good movie material, but can be completely ruined with uninterested teens doing parts they are not comfortable with. I hope that is not the case

Dusty on Mar 25, 2008


I think it looks good. I really wanna know what the music is.

Squiggly_P on Mar 25, 2008


I'm basing it on how I just saw a two minute trailer on a movie about "growing up" and all I can remember is swimming, underage girls kissing, and a techno song. I don't know about you but this doesn't appeal to me at all.

Mel on Mar 25, 2008


For anyone who wants to know the music: Group = Vitalic Song = Trahison Album = OK Cowboy

Squiggly_P on Mar 25, 2008


@10: Well, the legal sexual age in most European countries is 16...

Trailer = 0% content. Personal Interest = 0%

Echelon on Mar 25, 2008


I never base my opinion of a film on a trailer. Isn't that film 101? Thats like judging a book by its cover or even worse the synopsis on the back. Maybe it's just me I guess. The trailer tells me nothing.

E on Mar 25, 2008


Okay, listen. I didn't make my comment so I could argue with someone else over a silly film. But I will say this; if the trailer told you nothing, how do you know this film is SO great? Isn't that a paradox. . . A comment is just a comment. Everyone one is entitled to their opinion. And on that note I'm done with this movie and explaining why I won't go see it. Don't bother to comment back.

Mel on Mar 25, 2008


dont expect anything more than kissing as they are certainly underage and theres no way they could play it in the u.s. if it got to some serious girl on girl action there would be childs rights groups, decency in film groups, pedophilia groups and probably hundreds more coming out of nowhere to protest it

harrison on Mar 25, 2008


i don't know...but i'm feeling this film. sure it feels weird that they're underage and all. but i still want to see the story unfold. to me, it looks like a damn good way to spend 2 hours. like the film be art like it should be. why does everyone always have to try and bring things down? so what if they're underaged and they're interested in each other? take two hours out of your life to see and think about how this very scenerio is probably happening all over the world. did i just make myself look stupid?...and another question, will this be playing in more theaters at a later date? cause it says NYC only. and last time i checked, i don't live in NYC.

craziemutant on Mar 26, 2008


i really hope no one does a 'pee wee' while watching this film

Drake on Mar 26, 2008


Why the talk about legal sexual age? The legal sexual in most US states is 16. But a movie content has nothing to do with age of consent. This is not a porn film, it is a movie. When exactly did everyone in the US become so f*cking stupid?

JJ on Apr 2, 2008


And to the moronic author of this article, why are you surprised that the MPAA approved this trailer? What could you possibly see is a big deal in it? I assume this site can't be serious with idiots like this f*ck around.

JJ on Apr 2, 2008


i poo on this tralier!!! booo!!

Anonymous on Apr 15, 2008

tokamak on Apr 16, 2008


hi the music on the trailer is Vitallic and a song he did called trihanna - it is good but the album is very electro focussed

dan on Apr 16, 2008


I hope those girls are very young looking girls that are actaully older. As many girls there are in my family i dont think i will be seeing that, um lets see???? EVER.

D Mizzle on Apr 16, 2008


Does anyone know the name of the artist/song being played in the trailer?

Stan Marsh on Apr 23, 2008


The music is Vitalic from the album Ok Cowboy the track is called Trahison. It's a very good album too.

ex1t on Aug 31, 2008
