Camille is 15, Sullivan 19. They are passionately in love, but at the end of the summer Sullivan leaves. A few months later her stops writing to Camille…
Nothing is out of place in Un amour de jeunesse (Goodbye First Love), a film as direct, luminous and solid as the Bauhaus architecture that is very present in the film. Nothing is out of place in the title which announces love lived in the innocence of youth, its gradual disappearance, its analysis as an adult. This could be very run of the mill, but Mia Hansen-Løve resolutely avoids the ornaments of flashbacks, over obvious rhymes, the melodramatic staging of fate. It is only once they have been experienced that the signs of the successive stages come to mind. “Un amour de jeunesse" is a confirmation of what Mia Hansen-Løve's two previous films had in terms of originality, depth of vision, intelligence in the narrative”. (Florence Maillard; Les Cahiers du cinéma)
