Digital presentation - It's 1971, and in the wake of the revolutionary fervor of May 1968 a group of youthful Paris radicals are trying to live their ideals, contributing to the revolution they believe is just beginning. Would-be painter/filmmaker Gilles (Clément Métayer)—a stand-in for the director in this semi-autobiographical story—tries to meld his artistic dreams with a commitment to political action. Passionate girlfriend Christine (Lola Créton of Goodbye, First Love), throws herself wholeheartedly into the task of organizing. Together, with a group of like-minded friends, they paint political slogan graffiti, take part in a street riot and throw the occasional Molotov cocktail. Olivier Assayas (Carlos, Summer Hours, Clean) brilliantly conveys the youthful spirit of the period, when change was in the air: in explorations of new lifestyles, arguments about strategies and tactics, and above all its music, a constant presence that becomes something like the artistic subconscious of an era. The period details are perfect, but what makes this film so special is the urgent sense it conveys of history as lived experience.
