1er amour 2013
1h 20min | Drama | 21 June 2013 (Canada)
Antoine, 13, spends the summer vacation with his parents in a rented cottage on an island in the middle of the Saint-Lawrence River. His neighbour, 17-year-old Anna, is an enigmatic and lively young woman. Antoine begins to experience the first stirrings of love-which soon yield a troubling brew of anxiety, desire and obsession. He eventually comes across a terrible secret that will forever change his life.
These cruel moments of emotional truth, which pass through a line of dialogue, a delicate gesture, even an intention, contribute to making the “world” of 1st love a closed place of an engaging poetic realism. And if the long shots of nature or the inserts of insects are not the most inspired, they fit well in this context where, in a place limited in time and space, take place inevitable adventures that nothing can stop. Skilfully avoiding over-guilting his characters, the film suggests that we do not always control what we do, which in cinema is not obvious given the need to justify the characters and their actions.
