May of 1968 as if you were there
10 June 2002 | by (Paris) – See all my reviews

The subject of this documentary is May of 1968's french "mini-revolution" observed with tenderness by the very precise eye of William Klein. My favorite scene shows a young girl talking over the phone to one of her friend's mother, telling that it's not really war, that it is harmless, that she saw him some hours earlier, alive... Some important people of that time like Daniel Cohn-Bendit appear.
