With such a title, the average movie lover might think that this is just another film for teenage girls, and even though this film is about a young girl, The Diary of a Teenage Girl is (thankfully) very different, and especially much better.

The film has a Belgian touch, as this debut by Marielle Heller was produced by the US Department of the Belgian production company Caviar. This coming-of-age story is the film adaption of the popular comic by Phoebe Gloeckner from 2002. We are in San Francisco in 1974, where people still are wearing flowers in their hair and free love rules. Minnie (Bel Powley) takes that quite literally, because during the search for her own sexuality, she wants to explore her first sex actions with the boyfriend of her mother (Alexander Skarsgård

Just as the German Feuchtgebiete, this film is all about sex. Some viewers will have difficulties with the explicit scenes, but if you’re not easily offended, then you certainly will have fun with The Diary of a Teenage Girl.

Met zo’n titel zou de doorsnee filmliefhebber wel eens durven denken dat dit de zoveelste draak voor bakvissen is, en ook al gaat deze film over een jonge tienermeid, is The Diary Of A Teenage Girl (gelukkig) heel andere (en veel betere) koek.

De film heeft trouwens een Belgisch kantje, want dit langspeelfilmdebuut van Marielle Heller is geproduceerd door de Amerikaanse afdeling van het Belgische productiehuis Caviar. Dit coming-of-ageverhaal is de filmadaptie van de populaire comic van Phoebe Gloeckner uit 2002. We verplaatsen ons naar het San Francisco van 1974 waar iedereen nog met bloemen in het haar rondloopt en te vinden is voor vrije liefde. Minnie (Bel Powley) neemt dat wel vrij letterlijk, want tijdens de zoektocht naar haar eigen seksualiteit papt zij meteen aan met de vriend van haar moeder (Alexander Skarsgård).

Net zoals het Duitse Feuchtgebiete wordt in deze film alleen maar over seks gepraat. Sommige kijkers zullen bepaalde expliciete scènes misschien net een brug te ver vinden, maar wie geen behoefte heeft om moraalriddertje te spelen, zal zich beslist amuseren met deze aparte, maar zeer leuke film!
