Oh to be young and in love in Paris. 

Youthful newcomer Suzanne Lindon’s sparkling debut is a tale of first love that unfolds among the streets and cafes of a sun-kissed Montmartre.

Suzanne (Lindon) is bored. A gawky, awkward teenager, she 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 Raphaël. He’s working at a theatre on her route between school and home, and their regular encounters see them finding common ground in each other. 

If the set-up sounds familiar, Lindon spices her film with more than enough surprises. In particular, a trio of musical numbers echo the everyday life song-and-dance routines of Jacques Demy’s beloved The Umbrellas of Cherbourg. And just as remarkable is the fact that Lindon wrote, directed and starred in this film when she was 20. It promises much from this new filmmaker, but taken on its own terms it is a refreshing delight. GFF21

The film will be followed by a recorded Q&A with Suzanne Lindon in conversation with Glasgow Film CEO Allison Gardner, filmed during Glasgow Film Festival 2021.
