Les Roseaux sauvages
In the summer of 1962 we follow a group of schoolfriends as they learn about love at the brink of adulthood.
Dir André Téchiné
With Élodie Bouchez, Gaël Morel, Stéphane Rideau, Frédéric Gorny
Summer 1962. The Algerian War is ending, and in a town in Southwest France a group of schoolfriends find the turbulence of the times intrudes on their intertwined romantic yearnings: shy François (Morel); his friend Maïté (Bouchez); working-class Serge (Rideau); and aloof Henri (Gorny). Téchiné’s heartfelt and sensual coming-of-age story beautifully captures the turbulence of life on the brink of adulthood.
