Olivier Assayas’s 1970s-set breakthrough captures the heady emotions and passions of youth.
Dir Olivier Assayas
With Virginie Ledoyen, Cyprien Fouquet, László Szabó
Adolescent rebellion is captured with evocative, naturalistic charge in Assayas’ 1970s-set breakthough, which tells the story of teenage lovers Gilles (Fouquet) and Christine (Ledoyen), who rage against their families and society, until she’s caught shoplifting and sent away. With an immaculate rock soundtrack, Assayas’ autobiographical film is a thrillingly fluid immersion in the heady emotions of youth.
