Directed by: Olivier Assayas
2012 Venice Film Festival Award Winner for Best Screenplay!
"Mr. Assayas's method is observant and immersive. His camera moves among young bodies like an invisible friend, and his somewhat messy narrative is propelled by fidelity to feeling rather than by the machinery of plot."
- A.O. Scott, New York Times
"Olivier Assayas has made a distinctive and nuanced film about the much-chronicled post-1968 years of radical European politics, as well as providing droll insight into his self-discovery as an artist."
- David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
At the beginning of the seventies, Gilles, a high school student in Paris, is swept up in the political fever of the time. Yet his real dream is to paint and make films, something that his friends and even his girlfriend cannot understand. For them, politics is everything, the political struggle all consuming. But Gilles gradually becomes more comfortable with his life choices, and learns to feel at ease in this new society.
