Etienne, a serious and impressionable shaggy-haired young cinephile, leaves behind his steady girlfriend 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 until complicated matters of the flesh, as well as jealous creativity, intrude. Shot in timeless black and white and interweaving references to philosophy, music, and cinema A PARIS EDUCATION is a bittersweet ode to the heady days of student life that evokes the films of the French New Wave.
Official Selection at the Berlin International Film Festival. Official Selection at the BFI London Film Festival.
“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.” – Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter
