丑化

该点评最初于2020年9月9日发布,正在为女性作家周发布。

批评的说法是“描述不等于认可”。艺术应该能够解决禁忌,而不需要倡导他们,但一些表面级读数会错过工作挖掘的东西,因为它乍一看并不明显。在保守的愤怒之后,通过首次亮相作家/董事的早期海报Maïmounadoucouré.’s “Cuties,” this is a sentiment that bears repeating. The film actively critiques the very thing pearl-clutchers were mad about—the sexualization of children—butDoucouré received death threats。电影经销商Netflix发出道歉。

争议之外,“cuties”是一个困难而挑战的薄膜,推动“描绘并不等于认可”的思想。读回复仍然指责它谴责的电影仍然会让我感到惊讶。然而,Doucouré使用这些不舒服的图像来激发关于女孩的性化的严肃对话 - 特别是关于颜色的女孩,女孩的性行为,双重标准,社交媒体对孩子的影响,以及儿童如何学习这些行为。为此,导演展示了年轻女孩在音乐视频和长大的舞蹈惯例中看到他们所看到的内容。在电影中有几次,我们看到成年人的困惑或甚至恶心的面孔观看了年轻一代陀丽属和Twerk,咬着嘴唇或他们的钉子以暗示的方式。这些女孩可能不会完全理解这些手势的意思,但他们在流行文化中看到它,他们模仿它,就像在他们面前的其他几代女孩一样。Doucouré还探讨了一些想要适应和认真对待的情感缠结,以及表现出色的反响。这些经历中的许多经历都植根于主任自己的童年,或者在她在“Cuties”剧本上采访时的女孩的故事中。

“Cuties” is a coming-of-age story of a girl caught between cultures and age. 11-year-old Amy (Fathia Youssouf Abdillahi)居住在巴黎的塞内加尔家庭的长女儿必须帮助她的母亲Miriam(MaïmounaGueye.),在公寓周围有平凡的任务,如看着她的弟弟妹妹,出去寻找用品和清洁混乱。然后,Miriam了解她的丈夫曾拍过了一个新的妻子,而Amy则在准备上宣传的婚礼的准备方面是不情愿的。虽然她的家人虔诚地穆斯林,艾米开始在学校欣赏舞蹈团体,谁称自己是Cuties-Angelica(麦地那埃尔艾利),Coumba(Esther Gohourou.),JESS(ilanah cami-goursolas)和yasmine(Myriam Hamma.) - 试图加入他们的行列。她开始穿着更像他们,并做他们敢于她做的事情。最后,她据说是一种方法来让酷女孩通过学习挑衅性的举动来接受她,这将有助于他们赢得竞争竞争的竞争对手的老年女孩。艾米陷入了她的情绪的旋风,并运行了她母亲的期望。

Under Doucouré's direction, the film walks a fine line between its controversial imagery and taking a step back to reveal the emotional impulses that drive Amy and her friends to seek attention and affirmation. There are echos of films like “Eve’s Bayou,” “少女” and “The Fits“但是,艾米的年龄和直接性”cuties“解决了性年轻女孩的问题,这部电影感到独特。在电影摄影师的帮助下Yann Maritaud, Doucouré adds little surrealistic elements and uses color to make her images pop off the screen. For instance, there’s a recurring motif of Amy transfixed by the dress she’s supposed to wear for her father’s wedding, and different things happen to it that correspond to what she’s going through. It’s likely not a mistake that the turquoise color of the dress echoes some of the colors around the apartment, tying together the threads of culture and home into one. For every dance scene that may make you want to avert your eyes, there are other uncomplicated moments of childhood playtime like Amy and Angelica talking with their mouths full of gummy bears or four of the girls running with shopping bags throwing confetti, like they’re leading a parade for themselves. As if following the beat ofNiko Noki’s music for the film, “Cuties” moves at a quick, riveting pace. The two parts of Amy’s world are seamlessly connected together by editorsStéphane Mazalaigue和Mathilde Van de Moortel。

The movie is so much more nuanced and bold than the first wave of outrage charged. With “Cuties,” Doucouré announces herself as a director with a keen visual style who’s unafraid to explore these cultural and social tensions. After all, these are issues facing many young girls growing up today in various corners of the world. You’d just never know it because their coming-of-age horror stories aren't always told in film.

也许是“cuties”最重要的信息是,无论艾米说或做什么,她仍然只是一个11岁的女孩。人们很快就会判断她试图像成年人一样行事,但真的,她想要的只是感到酷炫和适应。她想被人喜欢,以及中学生存的人无法识别哪些人无法识别?她认为这样做的方法就是模仿他人。相反,她成为这个过程中的警示故事。
