A Paris Education / Mes Provinciales (N/C 15+)
Pure love of cinema inhabits every frame of Jean-Paul Civeyrac’s sensitive and sophisticated portrait of Etienne, a provincial boy who moves to Paris to attend film school. Soon after this wide-eyed boy from Lyon lands in Paris he makes friends with Mathias, a charismatic classmate who becomes a guru-like figure. It is also not long before Etienne’s love life becomes complicated, just like in the plot of a French New Wave film. Civeyrac’s finely tuned screenplay captures all the nervous excitement of youth chasing artistic dreams.
