MOVIE REVIEW: GIRLHOOD
The other side of Paris life
Girlhood isscreening at the AF French Film Festival.
The big screen
Paris is many people's dream tourist
destination. The Paris we see in
Girlhood is far from the tourism icons
of the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre
Marieme, 16, lives in a high rise
building in the outer suburbs of Paris.
She has been told that her
aspirations for further studies are
unattainable due to her low marks.

Newfound friends Lady, Adiatou
and Fily offer her safety, friendship
and a sense of security from the
hardships of her life.
Shoplifting clothes, extorting
money from fellow students and
getting drunk temporarily lift
Marieme's confidence and her self-
esteem appears to rise while she hangs
with her gang.
Although she escapes her tough life
for a few hours, in reality, Marieme
realises that the girl gang is merely a
The cocoon of the gang protects her
from the realities of her life, including
her abusive brother, hard-working
absent mother and dead-end
educational prospects, but it is not
enough to shield her from the
realisation that her future is limited
and her ability to escape the confines
of her life in the tenements is bleak.
Although there are bright gaps in
her blighted life, such as her love for
Ismael, no amount of swagger and
hard-nosed attitude will break the
restraints of her situation.
She is destined for a low-end job or
the confines of marriage. Her dreams
become tarnished by the tangible
world. Life does not always have a

Bo's living legacy band dream
Blood Sweat and Tears
will play at Canberra
Theatre on September 2.
Blood Sweat and Tears was rock n' roll at
Woodstock in 1975 and continues to wow
fans in the modern day of digital streaming.
The timeless American jazz-rock band is
touring Australia in September and comes
to the Canberra Theatre on September 2.
Front man Bo Bice had no idea that
singing Spinning Wheel on American Idol in
2005 would lead to the band's founding
drummer Bobby Colomby tapping him on
the shoulder almost a decade on.
"Without me knowing, singing that song
on Idol was my audition for Blood Sweat
and Tears. Now, a year and a half later, I am
getting to tour to Australia -- one of the
places that's been on my bucket list since I
was a boy," Bice said.
The Alabama vocalist felt honoured to
play in the legendary nine-piece band.
"I'm proud to be a part and to have that
feather in my cap and be one of the alumni
of one of the biggest legacy bands on the
planet," he said.
"Bobby Colomby's involvement since
the very start is the reason this band is a
legacy band ... He has never shut the switch
off and let it run on auto pilot."
Catch Blood Sweat and Tears on
September 2 at Canberra Theatre from
7.30pm. Tickets $64.70 - $92.20 at
