A Paris Education may very well be a whiny French film par excellence.
There’s a conviction to the storytelling that can’t be denied, and no matter what your tastes are, it’s hard not to be moved by Etienne’s struggle to find his voice amid so much doubt and disillusion.
A sincere and very specific kind of coming-of-age tale that’s anchored in the performances of a committed young cast, many of them relatively unknown.
Jean-Paul Civeyrac offers a splendid piece of fiction, full of scope, charm and mastery, with some excellent performances from young actors.
Sumptuous black and white film, rich in a number of impressive shots that weave together a plot that is both simple and yet very sophisticated, the film distils an irresistible timeless charm, realistic without being naturalistic, contemporary without being a slave to the times.
