Through the nocturnal wanderings of two young men in Paris, Héléna Klotz captures the melancholy and disorderly romance of an entire rebellious generation.
Olivier Père, Director of ARTE France Cinema
Two teenagers meet up one Saturday evening to roam together. As they cross through Paris, the meetings and disillusions add up to the point where they question their feelings for one another.
Shorter version of ATOMIC AGE, Héléna Klotz's debut feature film and winner of the Jean-Vigo prize in 2012.
Cast: Niels Schneider, Eliott Paquet, Dominik Wojcik, Mathilde Bisson
There is some kind of radicality when we are teenagers which still resembles me. An absolute desire which I find touching and beautiful, since ephemeral, and which is quite related to my desire for cinema.
