1er amour 2013
1h 20min | Drama | 21 June 2013 (Canada)
Antoine, 13, spends the summer vacation with his parents in a rented cottage on an island in the middle of the Saint-Lawrence River. His neighbour, 17-year-old Anna, is an enigmatic and lively young woman. Antoine begins to experience the first stirrings of love-which soon yield a troubling brew of anxiety, desire and obsession. He eventually comes across a terrible secret that will forever change his life.
The frustrating thing about 1er Amour is that it has so much unfulfilled potential. There’s the possibility of a really good movie about adolescent obsessions, about unrequited love, about first love.
