Cold Water

Thursday, November 15, 2018 at 7:00pm to 7:00pm

Willard Straight Theatre
Central Campus

1994 > France > Directed by Olivier Assayas
With Virginie Ledoyen, Cyprien Fouquet
An acclaimed early work by Olivier Assayas that has long remained unavailable, Cold Water is a deeply felt coming-of-age drama. Drawing from his own youthful experiences, Assayas revisits the outskirts of Paris in the early 1970s, offering a portrait of teenage lovers and adolescent rebellion, with its main characters shoplifting, partying, and bucking authority like there's no tomorrow. With a rock soundtrack that vividly evokes the period, and provides the backdrop for one of the most memorable party sequences ever committed to film. Shown in a recent digital restoration. Subtitled. More at

This movie was a masterpiece - I was not prepared for such a tour de force. Will never forget this movie - it was that good.
