Film description

François Ozon likes to surprise his audiences. His latest film Ricky offers an exceptional mixture of genres and excellently composed roles. Katie is a single mother employed at a factory, who lives in one of the many anonymous blocks. Her life changes when she meets Paco, falls in love with him, and becomes pregnant very soon. When the title child is born, their life is transformed for a while.

Ozon has proven many times that he feels at ease with many various film conventions. Ricky combines bitter social observation with a great dose of magic realism. The filmmaker juggles with styles, starting from the realist, para-documentary prologue and smoothly continuing on to the fairy-tale poetics. The story told retrospectively avoids sentimentalism, skilfully presenting the family drama and relationships between the characters. The wonderful performance by the two main actresses is noticeable - Alexandra Lamy as the mother and Mélusine Mayance who plays seven-year-old Lisa. They bring elements of psychological realism to the film. The director perfectly mastered all possible film tricks, but Ricky is something more than a skilful filmmaking magic show. This piece of art proves once again the maturity of this artist and his exceptional talent.
