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.

Coming of age
28 January 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A marvelous film that examines maturing youth within the context of political activism. The movie focuses on the emotional turmoil of teenage Nadia as she begins to develop adult emotions. While I'm sure some may concentrate on her sexual awakening, what is far more intriguing is her movement from her family's values and an understanding of her place in the world as part of a political system to an introspective person, who ironically matures by becoming less sure of herself. As she sheds family apron strings and the blanket of political ideology she becomes vulnerable and in acknowledging this becomes a women.
