In the summer of 1939, 13-year-old Marie goes with her parents to visit her grandmother in a small town near Avignon. Although rumors of war reach the countryside, it’s an idyllic place, and Marie’s parents are constantly making love. Surrounded by sexual frankness, Marie fancies herself a woman and develops a crush on Alexander, the town’s young Jewish doctor but is despondent when he treats her like a child…

    Another Jeanne Moreau surprise. A step-up for me from the interesting LUMIERE and of course here we have the great, always welcome Simone Signoret. Thank you very much for this, Jon.

    Bravo ! Completely unavailable for the longest time, then more recently only in a pallid, low-res B&W rip of some sort. This looks to be of much better quality.

    Marie does N outstanding job as does # Simone Signoret as grandme. The rest are not particularly well engaged.

    A very nice film. I especially enjoyed the setting. Nice beautiful countryside, and a farming community. There were happily moments, and also sad moments. It was so true to life’s up and downs. Such a good movie.

    The movie “L’ Adelescent (1979) does not play. It just has a constant buffering image.

      Hi Eric,

      It does play actually, I just tested it so it seems to be an issue in your end, try with a different browser or device and you could also try cleaning cookies and cache from your browser, closing the browser and opening it again, that usually fixes these type of issues.
      Let me know if it worked 🙂

      Thanks,
      Jon.
