Oh to be young and in love. The UK premiere of S uzanne 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.
