L'adolescente

In Jeanne Moreau's second feature as director, a young woman has a romantic awakening

Jeanne Moreau’s second feature as director is a warmly observant chronicle of three interconnected generations – daughter, mother (Edith Clever) and grandmother (Simone Signoret) – that traces the rapture and disenchantment of a young teenage girl’s romantic awakening on the eve of World War II, and allows Moreau to explore a distinctively feminist sensibility.

The surrounding mountainous French countryside is captured with an intimate attention to its sensorial atmosphere, idyllic but for the approaching dark clouds of war. Features a movingly expressive score by Philippe Sarde.
