Mes petites amoureuses

Jean Eustache | France | 1974 | Unclassified (15+)


Wed 17 Jul 2024

See below for additional related events

Eustache’s second and final narrative feature is a frank study of early adolescence based on the director’s own youth. His stand-in is 12-year-old Daniel (Martin Loeb), who falls in with a group of older boys after relocating from rural Bordeaux to live with his mother in a cramped apartment in Narbonne. A conscious departure from Eustache’s opus, The Mother and the Whore, its Bressonian performances and brilliant colour cinematography by Néstor Almendros create a deeply personal yet unsentimental portrait of sexual awakening. With Ingrid Caven and Maurice Pialat.
