In her third feature, Mia Hansen-Løve again mined personal biography for a story of a doomed young romance, and how we do and don’t move on from first love…

Camille (Lola Créton) is a teenager in a whirlwind romance with Sullivan (Sebastian Urzendowsky), a boy a few years her senior who is planning on backpacking with friends in South America.

Infatuated and devastated when his departure proves to be the end of their romance, the pain and rejection Camille feels will dent and shape her own journey towards becoming a successful architect, only beginning to be healed when she meets a charming professor and embarks on another relationship.

But when she encounters Sullivan again several years later, her sense of self, and her belief that she has moved on from her first love, is called into question.

Once again telling a version of her own story, Mia Hansen-Løve uses her third feature to explore the question of how much we ever really change – her characters barely changing in appearance despite a passing decade underlining the question – and how our experiences are carried with us even as life moves on.

Another quietly profound story of personal growth and emotional change, Hansen-Løve continues to relay emotional epics through the gentle passage of time.

This film is screening at Tyneside Cinema as a part of our season Things To Come: The Films of Mia Hansen-Løve, click here to find out more.
