Look At Me

Overview

A talented woman struggles to get out from under the shadow of her father in this comedy. Lolita Marilou Berry is the 20-year-old daughter of Étienne Cassard Jean-Pierre Bacri, a wealthy and well-known editor and writer, and most of the people she meets seem to be more interested in her dad than in her; her zaftig figure doesn't help her self-esteem much, either.

Overview

A talented woman struggles to get out from under the shadow of her father in this comedy. Lolita Marilou Berry is the 20-year-old daughter of Étienne Cassard Jean-Pierre Bacri, a wealthy and well-known editor and writer, and most of the people she meets seem to be more interested in her dad than in her; her zaftig figure doesn't help her self-esteem much, either. Lolita is a gifted singer and has been studying with a voice coach, Sylvia Agnès Jaoui; however, as it turns out, Sylvia has a husband, Pierre Laurent Grévill, who is a novelist and hopes that Cassard might be willing to help him get his new book into print and onto bookstore shelves. The great writer seems to take a cavalier attitude toward nearly everyone around him, though, including his wife, Karine Virginie Desarnauts. Lolita strikes up a friendship with a young man named Sebastien Keine Bouhiza which seems to be leading to romance, but when Lolita learns that Sebastien wants to become a writer, she finds herself wondering if he really wants her, or just an introduction to her dad. Jaoui, who plays Sylvia, also directed Comme une Image aka Look at Me and co-wrote the screenplay.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Richie Unterberger
Look at Me combines acerbic comedy and the pathos of just-post-adolescence with reasonable sharpness, wit, and sensitivity, though its large cast and subplots sometimes draw attention away from its central characters and conflicts. Flawed heroine Lolita Berry pulls off the difficult feat of portraying with dignity a 20-year-old who doesn't conform to social norms of attractiveness, and whose problems with her weight and family disturb but do not wholly preoccupy her. Father Jean-Pierre Bacri effectively projects a boorish loutishness that's evident to everyone but himself, even if it verges on the caricature of a self-involved artist at times. While a side story of the rise of the burgeoning success of friend of Bacri's (Laurent Grévill) occasionally distracts from the relationship between Berry and Bacri that supplies the movie's most compelling tension, it's a good excuse for getting in some amusing digs at media hype, the publishing industry, and its narcissistic celebrities. It's easy to take sides with the troubled daughter, but, to director Agnes Jaoui's credit, it's made clear that Berry has selfish blinders that mirror those of her father's as she gets caught up in her own creative pursuits. The clumsy blooming romance between her and idealistic student Keine Bouhiza is endearing but also, at times, unconvincing: not because a relationship between a plump girl and a more conventionally handsome youth is an issue, but because it's uncertain why such a bright young man would put up with her habitual callousness toward his feelings. Their rocky relationship is a little too hastily patched up near the end as well, but overall Look at Me strikes a worthwhile balance well-paced light farce and observations on the emotional casualties artistic ambitions impose on family and friends.
