This is not a great French masterpiece.It's full of clichés .Most of the characters are unpleasant or ludicrous.The events of May 1968 are a vague background ,with trendy words galore:revolution,nudity,freedom(check the title).The hero is a sort of young bourgeois,wishing to avoid an "imitation of life" but not averse to the occasional little financial paternal help.Actually ,how could he afford his own flat without it?The longing for independence (trying to work for the fruit crop)is short-lived .The only reason to see the movie is the beautiful and unfortunate actress Juliette Villard who passed away a few months after the movie was released.Too bad she did not live long enough to play in a good movie.French movies buffs,avoid this piece of garbage and check out Claude Chabrol's contemporary works like "le boucher" or "la rupture"instead:you will be highly rewarded.
