Goodbye First Love (2011)

Directed by: Mia Hansen-Love
Country: France

Plot: A chronicle of the romance between Camille and Sullivan, which begins during their adolescence.
Quick comment: This movie is about the difficulty of a young girl to let go her first boyfriend. It took several years of her life.  In some occasions it brought to my head Eric Rohmer’s tales, without the intense dialogs that distinguished them. A very natural acting was fundamental to induce the typical French realism and honesty. But I also sensed that the story, in its slow pace, could have had some more spirit in considerable moments. It is not exceptional nor fundamental, but deserves a good look.
Relevant awards: Special mention (Locarno).
