France | 1994 | Olivier Assayas

COLD WATER film still

Never released theatrically in the U.S. until this year, Olivier Assayas’ celebrated early movie is a tough, teen’s-eye portrait of adolescent rebellion circa 1972. Two troubled 16-year-olds—a shoplifter (Virginie Ledoyen) about to be institutionalized and a rebel (Cyprien Fouquet) with problems of his own—buck authority and run away together, first to an orgiastic party and bonfire at an abandoned chateau (an unforgettable sequence), then into the chilly and inhospitable world. A poetic masterpiece. Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 92 min.
