1968 and 1969 in Paris: during and after the student and trade union revolt. François is 20, a poet, dodging military service. He takes to the barricades, but won''t throw a Molotov cocktail at the police. He smokes opium and talks about revolution with his friend, Antoine, who has an inheritance and a flat where François can stay. François meets Lilie, a sculptor who works at a foundry to support herself. They fall in love. A year passes; François continues to write, talk, smoke, and be with Lilie. Opportunities come to Lilie: what will she and François do?

Best French movie of the year !!
by annaelle-simonet (France)
This is the best French movie of the year ! I saw it twice and I found it great both times. I didn''t think it boring at all even though it is very long (3 hours). I''m seventeen so I obviously didn''t get to live the events of may 1968 that marked an extremely important turn in French history, but it doesn''t really matter since I still really enjoyed the film. It''s actually quite universal : people of my parents'' age can identify to the characters and so can people my age. Garrel seems to perfectly understand young people, the way they think and the complications of love as well as the loss of illusions concerning the possibility of changing the world. Maybe that''s because the character played by Louis Garrel (his son)is actually meant to represent Philippe Garrel himself. Well anyway, great movie, no action (have to be honest on that point) but so strong feelings that you can''t possibly stay indifferent to it. If you''re looking for a relaxing Sunday-evening movie, don''t waste your time on this, you''ll be disappointed. But if you like cinema, you''ll like Les Amants Réguliers which is a bewitching movie close to those made in the 50''s and 60''s by the Nouvelle Vague artists.
