It will be our turn to forget to make a film faithful to Nabokov, and I am content to imagine that film using parts of Louis malle Eva ionesco and piccole labra

That is should be the movie as I said the daughter of 14 played by a twenty years old actress would not surprise me either because the casting there was no girl teenager will win the role or because there are issues that seem to be not for a girl young but in the end that will be a discussion will not end


Yes, but her character was actually supposed to be a lot closer in age to Alison at the time. She was actually conning him and only pretending to be his daughter. In Lolita, Dominique was 15 when she made the movie but played the character from 12-17. The one time they mention in the movie her age of 14 was supposed to be a couple of years into their relationship.

Little Lips followed the Lolita trend extremely well !! A man becomes infatuated with a young girl, gives her everything he can but the fleeting love interest of the child turns to a more popular / exciting guy, in this case a travelling gypsy :lol: There's a lesson here somewhere :idea:

When you love someone so much, an immediate instinct is to end it all. Even over time, often death is preferable to dealing with the loss. Only a significant other love can save you from this situation.

I'm not sure if it was love or obsession here, love turns so quickly to obsession and it is difficult to discriminate. When you hurt the other person by not letting them grow, is it love? Only in isolation, and in the absence of others / influence, could this relationship grow.

Also, people become accustomed to circumstance. The girl was appreciative to start with, but when the good things became normalised they started to mean nothing.

The rich guy should have taken time to get over it, bought whiskey and whores and laughed as the girl lived in squalor with the gypsies :lol:

Bilitis is another film that uses the same method

Although it was directed by David Hamilton, a master in photographic art with teenage models and 'lolitas' at the end it was pure smoke, the main actress patti d'arbanville was 26 years old not even the rest of the cast was believed to be all grown up with roles of teenagers
