About the Film
Sixteen-year-old Suzanne is rather bored with people her age. Every day, on her way to school, she walks by a theater. One day, she meets an older man there and becomes obsessed with him. Despite their age difference, they find in each other an answer to their ennui, and eventually fall in love. However, Suzanne is also afraid that she is missing out on life—the life of a regular 16-year-old, and the one she had struggled so much to enjoy in the same way as her peers. The film was selected for this year’s special Cannes Film Festival.
