‘Being 17’ is the latest film of André Téchiné a veteran French filmmaker. His view of adolescence is simple and accurate.

It is a physical, natural, sensitive and moving film. The attraction between the two teenagers gives the film its rhythm. Homosexuality is a frequent theme in the work of Téchiné, but here it works as a metaphor for trust in others and life itself.

Enjoy have a good week.
