Synopsis
Aurore may not get the best marks, but she’s certainly not dumb. She has a keen way of observing and commenting on her surroundings – on her parents, the boys, her French teacher and herself too. Defiantly stubborn, Aurore tests the boundaries and discovers in the process that she can let off steam with music and that she is not actually ‘frigid’. The film is based on the popular French trilogy of adolescent novels Le journal d’Aurore and features Catherine Hiegel and Alex Lutz.

Director’s biography
After shooting her first short film, Un homme faible in 1984, Emilie Deleuze studies film directing at the French school, La Fémis. In 1994, she directs for Arte the TV film L’incruste, penultimate chapter of the TV serie  All the boys and girls of their time. In 1999, her first feature film New dawn is screened at the Cannes Film Festival in the Un Certain Regard section. She wins the Fipresci Award. Her second feature Mister V, was selected in the Locarno Film Festival in 2003. Emilie Deleuze has also directed several short films, amongst which Letter to Abou for the Tv serie Pas d’histoires! 12 regards sur le racisme au quotidien screened in 2001.
In 2009, she shoots Unlikely Roommates, a TV film for Arte starring Luce Radot and Michel Galabru.
In 2013, she directs Tout est permis, again for Arte, a comedy starring Marcuak Di Fonzo Bo, Catherine Jacob and Judith Chemla.

Critic’s Word:
Told entirely from Aurore’s perspective, Miss Impossible feature plenty of clever voice over in which Aurore passes judgement on the adult world and the casual injustices of adolescence. She may be cynical, but her humour keeps her buoyant, loveable, and entirely relatable. She often had me laughing and her company is delightful.
