The gorgeous new romantic drama from rising talent Mia Hansen-Løve (Father of My Children) is an unashamedly personal story of love, loss and the tender memories from youth that can never truly be erased.
Spring, 1999. Camille (radiant newcomer Lola Créton) is 15 years old and head-over-heels in love and lust with Sullivan (Sebastian Urzendowsky), a brooding, husky- voiced boy four years her senior. Too young to be jaded or even realistic about love, the long-haired, open-faced Camille takes her first relationship extremely seriously, but Sullivan wants to go to South America for a year. In autumn, he leaves her.
2003: four years have passed. Camille studies architecture and lives on her own. On a trip to Denmark, she slowly falls for her eloquent professor, Lorenz (Magne-Håvard Brekke). In many ways he offers her what Sullivan couldn’t: stability and a future. But theirs is a rapport constructed on shared interests more than unbridled passion, and when Sullivan reappears, Camille finds herself caught between two loves. – Palace Films
