“Rich and assured…an attempt to capture a roiling period of change.”
—Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

“Warm, wistful, and absurdly cool…an autobiographical coming-of-age story nested inside a fiercely nostalgic portrait.
—David Ehrlich, Film.com

The revolutionary chaos of May 1968 gives birth to an enthused and energized generation of French teenagers ready to embrace the rebellion wherever they may find it. Joining his friends and classmates, Gilles (Metayer), a budding painter, disdains his middle class background and jumps onto the counterculture’s bandwagon, where he is soon diverted by first love with an elusive vixen, and second love with an agitprop filmmaker. Roads diverge and radicalism meets reality as director Assayas creates an even-handed semi-autographical portrait of a young man tried by the times but transformed by art and ambition. In French with English subtitles. DCP. (BS)
