Being 17

2/10/2016, 22:15, Odeon Opera 1

Despite being sworn enemies in the school corridors, two boys from different social backgrounds are asked to show the repressed feelings they have for each other. Twenty years after "Wild Reeds", the veteran of French cinema proves to be as youthful and ardent as ever, in a romantic coming-of-age story of a sexual awakening which reminds us what is really like to be 17 again.
