This 70s coming-of-age tale is an ode to teenage summers, first kisses and first losses.
Dir Diane Kurys
With Eléonore Klarwein, Odile Michel, Anouk Ferjac
Teenage sisters Anne (Klarwein) and Frédérique (Michel) couldn’t be more different: introverted Anne is trying to understand the world around her as she’s on the threshold of adolescence; and outgoing, political Frédérique (Michel) is beginning her first love affair. This coming-of-age tale, the debut feature of underrated French director Diane Kurys, is an ode to teenage summers, first kisses and first losses.
