Sexy coming-of-age tale

Based on the controversial novel Lila Dit Ca, Lila Says stars Vahina Giocante and Mohammed Khouas in a sexy coming-of-age tale that focuses on the cross-cultural relationship between teenagers Lila (Giocante) and Chimo (Khouas).

When an almost ethereal Lila shows up in Chimo’s quiet life, she transforms his world and sets off a sequence of events that begin with her daring him to look up her skirt and result in devastating consequences.

Giocante gives a stunning performance as Lila, who talks about love in an unusually daring and crude way; without risking vulgarity; whilst the film maintains a faultless balance of both the romantic and erotic as well as the violence and fury that are so intrinsic to human nature.

This exquisite film explores themes of friendship and humanity, while at the same time laying bare the risk that if you play with fire, you stand to get burned.
