  • Wild Reeds

    1994. France. Directed by André Téchiné. Screenplay by Téchiné, Gilles Taurand, Olivier Massart. With Élodie Bouchez, Gaël Morel, Stéphane Rideau, Frédéric Gorny. “Five French youths in the early 1960s face their own sexual awakening through pop music, movies, and the Algerian War. François maintains his affinity with Maïté while also being drawn to working-class Serge, who competes for Maïté along with the right-wing student Henri. These emotional conflicts are delicate yet devastating. Téchiné observes nature and human nature through a series of epiphanies” (Armond White, New York Press). NYFCC Best Foreign Film, 1995. In French; English subtitles. 110 min.
