Part of “Rendez-Vous with French Cinema 2010.” Director Laurent Perreau in person.

Claire, a tomboyish teenager who has been feeling the stirrings of first love, and her grandfather Maurice, a former Resistance fighter, share a house but soon discover much else in common as well. Laurent Perreau’s very impressive debut feature offers a fresh take on the classic “coming of age” tale, and as the grandfather, Michel Piccoli gives one of his finest performances in years, conveying vulnerability behind a gruff exterior.
