Twelve-year-old AnaÃ¯s is fat. Her sister, Elena, is a teenage beauty. While on vacation with their parents, AnaÃ¯s tags along with Elena as she explores the dreary seaside town. Elena meets Fernando, an Italian law student, who seduces her with promises of love, and the ever-watchful Anais bears witness to the corruption of her sister's innocence. Precise and uncompromising, Catherine Breillat's Fat Girl is a bold dissection of sibling rivalry and female adolescent sexuality from one of contemporary cinema's most controversial directors.
