A Paris Education

Etienne (Manet), a serious young cinephile, leaves behind his steady girlfriend 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… Shooting in timeless black and white and interweaving references to philosophy, music, and cinema, Paul Civeyrac conjures a bittersweet ode to the heady days of student life.
