Besotted teenagers Sullivan and Camille struggle with a painful push-pull dynamic, heightened by the young man’s decision to leave Paris and travel. Over the course of eight years, we watch Camille, initially devastated by her boyfriend’s departure, emerge with new passions and sense of self.
Anchored by an achingly sensitive performance from Lola Créton, Mia Hansen-Løve’s discerning study of personal revolution depicts adolescence with peerless grace. Illuminating a youthful romance with palpably lived wisdom, this sun-drenched film plumbs the profound immensity of formative first love.
