Linda Witt, Board member, AF Seattle / Committee member, Federation of AF USA Fragile is a delightful comedy-drama about young love. As a Francophile and learner of French, I enjoyed the beautiful sun-filled scenery of the Mediterranean and the witty dialogue. The characters and the dynamics of a small group of close friends, interlaced with the ever-evolving love story, kept the movie entertaining from start to finish. I also enjoyed the underlying themes around “caste” systems and the search for the meaning of happiness. Watching the film felt like a nice warm mini-vacation to a land of beauty, sun and youthful earnestness.
