Editorial Reviews

Director Mia Hansen-Love returns with GOODBYE FIRST LOVE, an acutely perceptive portrait of a bright young woman in the wake of her first romance. Fifteen-year-old Camille is a serious girl who has fallen in love with the cheerful Sullivan, an older boy who returns her feelings but wants to be free to explore the world. When he leaves her in order to travel, she is at first devastated, but in the following years she develops into a more fully formed woman with new interests and a new love - and the possibility that she'll be less defenseless when Sullivan enters her life again. A tender and uniquely personal film, Hansen-Love's follow up to the award-winning The Father of My Children is both "beautifully honest and psychologically astute." - Kenneth Turan, The Los Angeles Times.

Reading all these negative reviews about the film made me pretty sad. It shows a deep lack of understanding of the film and is probably also due to the mental approach from a totally different angle. Despite the overflow with US-Amercian productions, Europe, especially France, has been able to preserve its cinematographic culture more or less. Europe seems to be one of the few places left, where films are made for the sake of cinematics - not for the sake of their potential box-office takings.

"Un amour de jeunesse", the original title of the film, is one of the most beautiful love movies that I've ever seen. It perfectly portrays the power and fragility, the evanescence and eternity of young love, the love itself being as ambiguous and torn between extremes as young lovers, young people are.
The beauty consists in the authenticity and naturalness of both the screenplay and the actors integrated in their environment.
This film is very unpretentious and therefore probably odd to an audience which is used to factory-fabricated pieces from the Hollywood production line. It doesn't judge, there is not "the good" and "the bad guy". You won't find any Cinderella clichés confirmed and the ending doesn't correspond to a "happy-people-sit-together" or "there-is-a-solution-for-everything" scene.

People who seek for "cream-coloured silver screen tartlets" won't see their desire for mass customized, straightened and brightly polished entertainment satisfied.
However, all those who are able to look beyond the edge of the DVD case, will fall in love - with this film.

I was recently browsing the foreign movie section at my local library here in Cincinnati and fell upon this movie. When I noticed on the DVD jacket that this is from the same director (Mia Hansen-Løve) who brought us "The Father of My Children", which I loved, I immediately snapped this up.

"Goodbye First Love" (original (and much better) title "Un Amour de Jeunesse"; 2011 release from France; 110 min.) brings us the story of two teenagers, Camille (played by Lola Créton) and Sullivan (played by Sebastian Urzendowsky), who are madly in love, but Camille, being only 15, is a bit too clingy for Sullivan's liking. When Sullivan decides some time later to travel South America for 10 months, Camille is devastated and becomes outright depressed. In the beginning of his travels, Sullivan frequently writes to Camille, but that stops as well eventually. Camille needs to move on with her life, and eventually gets involved with Lorenz, an older guy (her architecture teacher at the local college). Will Camille and Sullivan eventually reconnect? Or has she found true happiness with Lorenz? To tell you more of the plot would ruin your viewing pleasure, you'll just have to seen for yourself how it all plays out.

Several comments: this movie was quite different from what I had expected, in the sense that this is so much more that a teenage love drama. In fact the movie is set over a period of almost a decade, and when Sullivan leaves for South America, we're not even half-way into the movie and it feels like the movie is just then really finding its legs (in that sense, pulling a "Psycho", in that one of the main characters disappears before the halfway point of the movie).

Format: DVD
Goodbye First Love (Un Amour de Jeunesse) is a French film about a young woman's relationship with her first love over a span of eight years, supposedly based on director/writer Mia Hansen-Løve's own experience. I say supposedly because the relationship portrayed strains the most minimal credulity even when considered that it's being seen through the distorted lens of romantic memory. To be fair, the film did garner a certain amount of critical praise in some circles. But for me, it was more than a bit of a reach.

Before I get to the plot, I will say one very positive thing about Goodbye First Love - it has some of the most beautiful cinematography of any film I've ever seen. Stéphane Fontaine, the cinematographer for this film, is a master of the use of natural light in photographing everything from the actors to the settings to the background scenery, making the film at once both breathtakingly beautiful while seeming completely natural on a level rarely seen in film. If you can put up with the inanity of the script, Fontaine's work here is a thing to behold, the kind of work film students would want to study and possibly emulate. If it wasn't for this, I would've rated it two stars, tops.

The film begins with two young lovers, Camille (Lola Crèton), a 15-year-old high school student, and Sullivan (Sebastian Urzendowsky), a college student, engaging in leisurely idyllic sex. Camille is totally infatuated with Sullivan, but while Sullivan talks about love, he is actually getting ready to drop out of college and go adventuring in South America with some friends. Without Camille. But of course until that moment comes, he still wants sex. The film moves along - very very slowly, pacing is a definite problem here - until finally Sullivan leaves.
