Boarding-school student Guillaume finds himself painfully attracted to his best friend. Meanwhile, after her boyfriend casually mentions how unlikely it is they’ll stay together for the long haul, his half-sister Charlotte embarks on chance encounters that leave her both exultant and unhappy. At summer camp, young Felix meets the gaze of his first love . . . Love dazzles, burns and causes tumult, according to Philippe Lesage, who’s back with an epic love story in three acts, generous and captivating. Théodore Pellerin and Noée Abita (a revelation in Ava, Louve d’or 2017) compellingly render the complexities of youth in this nervy coming-of-age tale shot through with Salingeresque insight and melancholy.
