:Young Solitude / Premières solitudes

France, 2018, 100 min

Claire Simon portrays an important time for any individual, from 16 to 18 years of age. Set in the Paris suburbs in high school (for those lucky enough to go), teenagers chat after and even during class, sitting in the hallway or outside on a bench, looking at the city below them. Claire Simon sets up a cinematic dialog with the teens, speaking about their personal history, their family, but also passions and loneliness. At this age, they start thinking about leaving their family, when there is one, and even run away from it when it’s completely broken. Being by yourself can bring as many good things as bad ones. This film becomes a place where they search and discuss the meaning of all this. A pure coming-age story, Young Solitude is an ode to youth.
