Synopsis

A study of minor events in the adolescence of a boy growing up in small towns. Daniel lives with his grandmother and, after a year of high school, goes to live with his mother in the south of France. When he returns to visit his grandmother, it is obvious he has grown up faster than his old friends.

My Little Loves Directed by Jean Eustache
The final sequences find Daniel back home in Pessac, on vacation. His old friends are still kids, while Daniel has aged irrevocably into adolescence. This is a loss that cannot be recovered, and Eustache renders it with eloquent, bone-deep sadness.
