Olivier Assayas and AFS Founder & Artistic Director Richard Linklater will introduce the film.

Long unavailable in the United States, AFS is thrilled to partner with Janus Films to premiere the brand new restoration of this 1994 classic, which brilliantly captures the textures, sights and sounds of a tortured adolescence. Christine (Virginie Ledoyen) and Gilles (Cyprien Fouquet) are high school sweethearts who can’t stay out of trouble, and so parents, courts and schools threaten to keep them apart.
