Storyline

Three months before her final examinations, the ambitious teachership student Valentine concentrates herself completely on learning. When Jazz musician Edouard wooes her, she agrees on a date though - planning for one night of pleasure only. But when she comes to know him better, she realizes that he isn't as shallow as she thought... so lust turns to love. But between her examination preparations and a tournee with a jazz band almost no time is left to be spent together. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

L'étudiante - For those who love
21 December 2010 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

To speak frankly - This is not just a french movie.

And honestly, it does have it's flaws, like every movie.

Good news is: They do not really matter.

Valentine is a young student in Paris, who hasn't got time for anything, not even for sleeping. A romance that lasts longer than a night is out of the question. Then she meets Ned, who doesn't even take the time to finish his sentences. From here it takes a rather usual turn: They fall in love until they start getting to know each other better and they reach the turning point, to settle for true love or to separate.

Everyone who gets to see this classic movie, that is in love or ever has been, shall jump up at the end and scream: 'Yes! Yes! That's exactly how it is!' With tears in one's eyes, because love is just like this and that's what L'étudiante has captured in all of its beauty.

This movie begins with love and it ends with it, furiously. Director Claude Pinoteau takes the viewer on a trip, that begins with the first amazement of a new acquaintance, this feeling that takes your breath away and ends in a monologue which is, in my honourable opinion, one of the best ever.
