The events of May 1968 are a defining moment in 20th century French identity. Olivier Assayas’ semi-autobiographical drama is a love letter to the legacy and possibilities of the period.
Set in 1971, it follows teenager Gilles as he tries to balance political idealism, artistic ambition and a hunger for love. He finds a soulmate in fellow idealist Christine. When unrest returns to the streets of Paris, they spend an endless summer at an Italian villa in a giddy atmosphere of intellectual curiosity, chaotic parties and romantic longing. An impeccable evocation of the music and moods of the 1970s lend added allure to one of Assayas’ most personal projects.
