My Little Princess

Eva Ionesco's semi-autobiographical debut, "My Little Princess," feels an awful lot like other monster-mommy tales, only this time, the director seems to be underplaying, rather than exaggerating, the particulars of her horrific upbringing. The helmer, daughter of Parisian photographer Irina Ionesco, achieved notoriety at an early age after appearing nude in her mother's provocative portraits. "Princess" shows her still quite conflicted on the subject -- and the casting of Isabelle Huppert, here in ice-queen mode, conveys everything about the odd blend of alluring glamour and twisted psychology.
