The Year After
Wow, what an amazing little film! I can't do this justice now, but will write on it further. This film exemplifies what I love about French cinema and why I'm learning the language. It's about a teenage girl and how she deals with her grief after her father dies. If you love small stories about ordinary people, depicted in a profound way, go see this film while you can!
