Diane Kurys' autobiographical first feature charts the adventures of
two carefree sisters, Anne (Elenore Klarwein), a shy misfit, and
Frederique (Odile Michel), a free-spirited extrovert, during the
socially turbulent Paris of the early '60s. Living with their divorced
Jewish mother, the girls shuttle between a rigid, claustrophobic
school and awkward holidays with their father. "The film is a harsh,
unsentimental look at adolescence, with the '60s setting serving
primarily to define the social and political context of the girls'
rites of passage" (Time Out). With Anouk Ferjac, Michel Puterflam,
Yves Renier and Robert Rimbaud. French with English subtitles.
