Eustache’s second feature is an autobiographical coming-of-age tale about Daniel (Martin Loeb), a young boy who lives happily with his grandmother in rural France, only to be uprooted and moved to Narbonne to live with his mother. Hanging out with older boys and discovering (and pursuing) girls, Daniel comes to several painful revelations about life, love, and sex before returning to visit his grandmother the following year.
