Amour fou in the middle of nowhere

Set over the course of a school year, BEING 17 tells the story of Thomas and Damien as they clumsily take the step from being friends to being lovers – all in the midst of a maelstrom of hormones and obligatory rebellions against parents, teachers and society. Working from a script by the talented Céline Sciamma, André Téchiné yet again displays his penchant for crafting complex characters and relationships. The result is a masterful movie about love, sexuality and family from one of Europe's most important directors.
