Language: French, English subtitles
What do you dream of when you're 16 years old and in a seaside resort in Normandy in the 1980s? A best friend? A lifelong teen pact? Scooting off on adventures on a boat or a motorbike? Living life at breakneck speed? No. You dream of death. Because you can't get a bigger kick than dying. And that's why you save it till the very end. The summer holidays are just beginning, and this story recounts how Alexis grew into himself.
This translation of Aidan Chambers' novel Dance on my Grave into a film is summery, sunny and simultaneously ill-omened from the start. Well-known director François Ozon dives into the colourful, naive and insouciant world of a teenage boy and takes you with him.
“Intimate and well-acted.” (3-star rating)
“…A sexy throwback to such early films as 'Criminal Lovers' and 'Swimming Pool.”
