Diane Kurys’s directorial debut introduced her onscreen avatar, Anne (Eléonore Klarwein) and imparted, autobiographical details throughout; it’s 1963, and just-turned-13 Anne and 15-year-old sister Frédérique (Odile Michel) navigate teachers at school, romantic pangs, and changing times. Championed by critics and audiences alike, the movie was hailed as a refreshing, female take on the coming-of-age story. 

In French with English subtitles.

40th anniversary 2K restoration.

Utterly charming…sweet and buoyant in its innocence.”
