Ava (2017) Rendez-Vous With French Cinema 2018
Well acted and well done AVA is a little too "meaningful' for my tastes when from the outset a big black dog wanders through a crowded beach and comes to Ava and effectively stays with her as it leads her off and to her destiny. Its a touch that while visually interesting is a little too obvious from the get go. And the rest of the film kind of follows suit.
While there is much to like about AVA I'm still not sure what I think of the film. While I can forgive the serious "this is about something important" tone, I'm not quite sure I can accept that Ava is only 13. There is a seriousness and quasi-maturity that is unnatural for someone of her age.
Worth a look
The film plays tonight and again on March 16th
