J’aime regarder les filles

Primo, 18 is the son of two florists from Province and is trying to pass his baccalaureate for the second time. One day before the election of Francois Mitterrand in May 1981, he meets Gabrielle and falls head over heels in love with her. But the two teenagers come from different social classes. While Primo’s parents belong to the working class, Gabrielle comes from the Parisian upper-class. Primo will then do all his best to impress her, by disguising his background and using all kind of stratagems and lies.

For his role as Primo, Pierry Niney won the Swann d’or for Male Revelation at the 2012 Cabourg Film festival and was nominated for the Cesar Award for the most promising actor.

’It is disenchanted, delightful and, finally, funny.’ Liberation

’For his debut as director, Frédéric Louf, who took his film’s title from a song of Patrick Coutin, managed to make a kind of ‘Sentimental Education’, charming and touching.’
Le Parisien
