Definition of love. That first love, the one that defies who you are, what you know yourself to be and the who you can once become.
Lola Créton is a wonder and she's capable of perfectly establishing a subtle self-examination of what it means to grow up. A true pleasure!
I LOVE THIS FILM! I'm not even exagerating, normally I dislike films that are this slow-paced but for this one, it works. This is love, this is life. I love Lola Créton's Camille, she is very real, and I feel for her. I think what really works here is that the atmosphere feels very isolated, even when Camille is surrounded by people I can see her in her own bubble. Shoutout to Magne-Håvard Brekke.
the film felt kinda like a poorman's "L'Heure d'Été", I was hoping for Alice de Lencquesaing the whole time...there's beauty within though...the countryside scenes are neat and I love the way she uses the silence, and I liked the soundtrack a lot...
The pain, futility and oft absurdity of first/young love is well portrayed in this third feature from director Mia Hansen-Love. We can all find some recognition and memories in the wonderful performance of Lola Creton even as we may wince at her actions. Hansen-Love's script deserves the accolades it received on release.
Une jeune architecte s'égare entre 1 first love, mièvre & aussi excitant qu'un livreur de pizza, & son prof puis amant, architecte de talent.
"La maison doit plaire à tous, elle répond à un besoin.
L'art ne doit plaire à personne, il est l'affaire de l'artiste & naît sans besoin particulier
L'homme aime son confort, donc la maison
Il hait ce qui le gène et touche à son confort sécurisant, il hait l'art" dit le prof.
After the brilliant Father of My Children, I felt quite let down by this. A lack of focus and story progression left me unconviced and detached from the characters. I also found the constant see-through clothing to pull me out of the story. I get the young girl, blossoming sexuality but surely she would not be still wearing the same bra-less get-up 7 years later in an architecture firm? 2.5 stars
