Veteran French director Agnes Varda's Le Petit Amour is based on a short story by actress/songstress Jane Birkin. Birkin herself plays the main character, a loving but lonely 40-year-old divorcee. Her life is brightened a bit by the presence of a handsome 15-year-old, played by Mathieu Demy. Their romance forms the basis of this "petit" Varda effort, which is also known as Kung Fu Master (now you'll have to see it for yourself!). Shortly after the release of Le Petit Amour, Agnes Varda directed a documentary centering upon Jane Birkin, Jane B par Agnes V. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"What redeems this movie and allows it to work is that it is about feelings, not actions."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"This is a suggestive film, touching a tabu subject, but it handles it delicately with an unflinching directness."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
