Sixteen-year old Junie changes high school mid-year, following the death of her mother. She finds herself in the same class as her cousin Mathias, who introduces her to his friends. All the boys want to date Junie, and she chooses the quietest among them, Otto Cleves. But soon after, she encounters the great love of her life, Nemours, her Italian teacher. The passion that burns between them is, however, doomed. Junie refuses to give in to her feelings and persists in denying herself happiness, which in her eyes is merely illusory.

consulted 'Louis Garrel' as to what subject his character should teach. Garrel suggested he be a teacher of Italian and Honoré wrote it into the script assuming that Garrel knew Italian because his fiancé at the time, actress Valeria Bruni Tedeschi
, was Italian. During shooting he discovered that Garrel actually spoke very little of the language. See more
