Synopsis

In a all-male private school, Guillaume, 16, is secretly in love with his best friend. His step sister Charlotte, 18, is startled as her boyfriend suggests to have an open relationship. Everything changes. Later in the summer, Félix, 12, falls in love with Béatrice in an enchanting holiday camp.

Our take

French-Canadian director Philippe Lesage’s second feature is a tender three-pronged tale about the anxieties and pain of young love. Premiering at Locarno, Genesis spotlights wonderful performances from its adolescent stars, finding invigorating angles and vivid emotion in a familiar subject.
