A Paris Education (DVD)
Directed by Jean Paul Civeyrac
Gonzague Van Bervesselès
Writer Jean Paul Civeyrac
Etienne (Andranic Manet), a serious and impressionable shaggy-haired young cinephile, leaves behind his steady girlfriend (Diane Rouxel) in Lyon to study film in Paris. Settling into a dingy flat with a rotating cast of roommates, he immerses himself in a bohemian world of artists, intellectuals, and fellow film geeks who excitedly share their passion for Bresson, Ford, and obscure Russian directors. It’s a seemingly idyllic life of the mind—until more complicated matters of the flesh, as well as jealous creativity, intrude. Shooting in timeless black and white and interweaving references to philosophy, music, and cinema—from Pascal to Mahler to Parajanov—Jean Paul Civeyrac conjures a bittersweet ode to the heady days of student life that evokes the films of the French New Wave. – Film Society of Lincoln Center

"Brings to mind how some of the best French movies — especially those of the New Wave — are marked by both an intense love of film and the fiery passions of youth."
“A splendid piece of fiction, full of scope, charm and mastery.”
“A wonderfully anachronistic homage to a timeless, New Wave-style world filled with cinephiles, lovers, and great films.”
“Evokes at once old masters like Bresson, Eustache, and Garrel and the incandescence, vibrancy, and fervor of youth.”
