Our take

Romain Laguna’s confident debut, showcasing his beautiful home region in southern France with sublime 4:3 cinematography, is formally and emotionally invigorating. Strong performances from an ensemble of non-professional actors, led by Zéa Duprez, give rise to a fresh spin on the coming-of-age tale.
