About the Film

Directors: Olivier Assayas
Actors: Lola Créton and Clément Métayer

Set in the aftermath of the cultural and political upheavals of May '68, this film tells the story of a group of young Europeans exploring their artistic, romantic and political awakening. The film is also an ode to a thrilling, evanescent moment in history when young people could feel revolution just within their grasp. Actress Lola Créton won the Revelation César for this film while director Olivier Assayas won for Best Screenplay at the Venice Film Festival.

The screening will conclude with an open discussion led by our in-house film expert, Barbara Bouquegneau.
