20 year-old Suzanne Lindon talks about her 16th birthday and seizes the opportunity to create a film that watches a woman blossom. Suzanne recounts, films, plays and dances this intimate and fragile moment that gives rise to both desire and fear. A promising first film with Arnaud Valois, seen at Cannes in 120 BPM (Beats per Minute).
the Selection Committee
Suzanne is 16. She is bored with people of her age. Every day on her way to high school, she passes a theater. There, she meets an older man, and becomes obsessed with him. Despite their age difference, they find in each other an answer to their ennui and fall in love. But Suzanne is afraid she’s missing out on life – that life of a 16-year-old, which she had struggled so much to enjoy in the same way as her peers.
