Bille en tête (1989) AKA Headstrong


Virgil is a young man of 16, without complex, ready to devour the life. He is at the turning point when we go from adolescence to adulthood, where he must face the future, love. It does not happen without clashes (with his father in particular), without tenderness (with the Arquebus, the grandmother) and without trouble, facing Clara, a young woman older than him with whom he falls in love. But Virgil’s goal is above all to go through life so as to never regret anything.

Many thanks to the person who sent me this, a very rare film by Carlo Cotti, who shall remain anonymous. This copy was sourced from a VHS of unknown origin, the audio was very noisy, to the point that the noise was louder than the voices so I applied a light denoise to make it better to watch, I’m still not completely satisfied with the result so I also added a link for the source file with uncropped black bars and the original undenoised audio (mkv rip). Enjoy!
