Young and Wild

A film by Marialy Rivas

Movie review

Despite her evangelical, thou-shalt-not-fornicate upbringing (or maybe because of it?), 17-year-old Daniela (Alicia Rodríguez) indulges in various sexual adventures and fantasies, all of which she writes about in her blog. Chilean filmmaker Marialy Rivas neatly conveys this via crude, witty voiceover narration and flashes of the images, photos and porno clips the teenager posts online along with her diary entries. This makes for a rather dynamic, enjoyable watch, but Young and Wild (Joven y alocada) eventually grows a bit more rom-com conventional, even though the romantic triangle Daniela gets into involves a boy (Felipe Pinto) as well as a girl (María Gracia Omegna) who awakens "Sailor Moon horniness" (!) in her.
