[Image: Still from the film ‘La Naissance des pieuvres’ showing two light-skinned girls with brown hair lying in a bed. The girl on the left is wearing a grey tank top and laying on her back. Girl on the right side is wearing a dark red t-shirt and laying on her side, facing the other girl. Caption at the bottom says, “Forget your stupid princess dreams.”]
Why did it take me so long to watch this movie? It was so sweet and beautiful and heartbreaking and I pretty much cried the whole time.
it was really intense and emotional for me, too. it was borderline triggery for me (because i was a synchronized swimmer at the same age) and it’s when a lot of my full-fledged body hate started happening because i was surrounded by assholes. i need to take the time watch it again when i’m ready. but heads up, it’s a pretty intense movie to watch if you’ve ever been a teenage girl.
