Pauline at the Beach is a charming French film, buoyed by a casualty about sex that is lacking from American cinema, completely light and effortless, but also weightless, for better or for worse. I enjoyed this film well enough as a light watch but it didn’t feel like it had any stakes. The young actress Amanda Langlet has a magnetism on screen that carried me through the watch, but ultimately I found this film crossing over into the realm of boring at times.
