Forever Young

Les Amandiers

63rd TIFF: Greek Premiere

It’s the end of the 80s in Paris, and a young troupe of comedians has just been admitted to Les Amandiers, the prestigious theater school headed by Patrice Chéreau. They set out in life and in their early career. Along the way, they will learn, act, love, fear, live to the fullest, and also experience their first tragedy. The filmmaker and actress's semi-autobiographical look to acting and her love letter to a friend and colleague long gone, eschews bigger questions for more pressing emotions, channeling her mercurial performance style and feisty screen presence through a screen language that asks if nostalgia is really all that it's supposed to be.
