I think that's supposed to demonstrate typical French passion, swinging from one end of the spectrum to the other in seconds flat. (Suppose that doesn't make it alright, but it's an explanation).
The Kiera Knightly Pride and Prejudice has a moment where she's pointedly admiring (awestruck, really) some sculptings of muscly nekkid men. My 12 y.o. dd noticed enough to be a little embarrassed. But, then, 12 y.o. girls are the world's most embarrassed people on the face of the earth.
Edited to add, about the Black Beauty movie from a few years ago, we talked about it over on the sad-movies-thread. I was on the verge of tears through out the movie, and people are horrible to horses. But then, I might not have been traumatized by it when I was 12!
That seems to be one of those themes you can handle 'before children' and not so much 'after children'.
