Oh to be young and in love. The UK premiere of Suzanne Lindon’s dreamy, remarkably assured directorial debut provides the perfect conclusion to the 2021 Glasgow Film Festival. The daughter of Sandrine Kiberlain and Vincent Lindon, Lindon emerges as a force to be reckoned with in her own right. Revisiting elements of her life, Lindon stars as a gawky, awkward teenager who never seems to quite fit in with her classmates. She doesn’t share their tastes or their plans. She only has eyes for dashing 30-something actor Raphael (Arnaud Valois) who works at the theatre she passes each day. Curiosity gradually turns to infatuation in a tale of first love that unfolds among the streets and cafes of a sun-kissed Montmartre. Delicately evoking the worlds of Francois Truffaut and Eric Rohmer, Lindon proves herself a dazzling new screen talent in a complete charmer of a film. As the sun shines and the heart is full of possibilities, it sets the mood for a Spring in which we all look towards brighter days.
