Belgian writer-director Vania Leturcq makes her feature debut with this coming-of-age drama that puts a fresh twist on the familiar story of teenage friends embarking on different paths into adulthood. They may have grown up in a small provincial Belgian village as inseparable friends, but outgoing Aude (Jenna Thiam – TV’s The Returned) and the more serious, introverted Clotilde (Constance Rosseau – Simon Killer) have different ideas about what they want to do once they finish school. Clotilde, desperate to follow her late mother’s path and study in Paris, drags a reluctant Aude along with her. Over the course of a year, as the excitement of Parisian life subsides, the pair must confront the very nature of their lives, loves and friendship. Underscoring the emotions of this strained friendship is a score from Manuel Roland (of Belgian rock group Applause), as well as a clutch of breezy Anglo-Gallic indie pop tunes, with vocalists including Applause bandmate Nicholas Ly, Belgian comedienne (and long-time Leturcq collaborator) Edwige Baily, and French songstress Jeanne Added.
