Hippie life in the aftermath of the May 68 riots
6 July 2013 | by R-P-McMurphySee all my reviews

An experimental coming of age drama that has a good story to tell, but lacks a narrative. Director Olivier Assayas undoubtedly has talent (Carlos), but this film is definitely a misstep in his career.

"Apres Mai", french for after may. Set after the May 68 riots and their immediate aftermath. Students keep protesting and then partying, sometimes they're complaining about how unjust everything is for them and other times they're in Italy getting high.

It starts out good with fast paced editing, a moving soundtrack, great cinematography and a couple of rebel students that made me feel like it was going to be something similar to "Carlos". The movie lost its direction after the first 30 minutes or so and wandered onto other less interesting themes like the hippie culture.

I'd recommend it to people who liked movies similar to "Not Fade Away", "The Dreamers", or "Summer Hours".
