TOMBOY is a subtitled French drama in which a ten-year-old girl pretends to be a boy when she enters a new circle of friends and must then face the awkward consequences of her deception.

Violence

Infrequent scenes of mild violence includes a fight between two children roll on the ground but are not shown delivering any serious blows. Later, a mother slaps a young girl, but soon clams down and offers her love and support to her daughter.

Nudity

There are brief scenes of natural female nudity, including brief genital nudity, as a young girl inspects her chest and stands in a bath. The sequences are narratively significant as she considers how long she can continue her deception in passing for a boy among her male friends.

In one scene, the girl is kissed by another girl of her own age (who thinks that she is a boy). However, this only indicates an innocent childish crush that develops between them.
