Sixteen year-old Suzanne feels alienated and distanced from her peers. One day, Raphael, an older actor, catches her eye and she finds it hard to think about anything else. Curiosity slowly turns into first love on the sunny streets of Montmartre. This astounding debut from Suzanne Lindon, who directs and stars in the main role, mixes heightened realism with extracts from her own life. Spring Blossom has become both a festival talking point and reminds one of a debuting Xavier Dolan.
