Storyline

1952, Paris. Nadia, a Red Diaper baby, has a sister, Polish parents, and at 15 is an active Communist. When cops beat her during an anti-American demonstration, she's rescued by a "Match" photographer. As the friendship becomes a love affair and her slogans are tested by new knowledge and emotion, some of the Red youth want to expel her. When she goes with Stéphane to a seaside photo shoot, her father goes to the police. Stéphane faces charges, so leaving to cover the war in Indochina looks appealing. In a parallel story, Nadia's mother meets again her prewar lover, released from Siberia, who challenges the French Reds with very real scars and word of Stalin's anti-Semitism.

Best movie a 15-year-old girl could ever watch...
5 July 2000 | by (Kiel, Germany) – See all my reviews

As a girl of 16, I first saw this film, and now, 14 years later, it still makes me laugh and suffer with Nadia. I guess teenage feelings, (not only romantic, but even personal problems with parents and ideologies) have never been shown in such an understanding way before or after Rouge Baiser. The form of characterization in small replies such as "I do not love the cemetary. It is just a hideaway. I do love the movies" should help any future cineast to identify with the heroine and change from mainstream teenage films to teenage films with higher demands.
