Spring Blossom Trailer

"I'm bored with people my age." KimStim Films has debuted an official US trailer for this French coming-of-age romance titled Spring Blossom, aka Seize Printemps in French, which was originally supposed to premiere at last year's Cannes Film Festival. Instead it premiered at the TIFF, San Sebastián, Athens, and Moscow Film Festivals. We posted a trailer last summer, but it was removed by the distributors. Suzanne Lindon directs and stars in this film as a 16-year-old girl who is bored with her own age group, unable to connect with those around her. She becomes obsessed and sexually involved with an older man, an actor, at a theater she passes by. This also stars Arnaud Valois as Raphaël, plus Frédéric Pierrot, Dominique Besnehard, Rebecca Marder, Philippe Uchan, and Françoise Widhoff. I'm sure the age-gap young romance in this will cause an uproar, but it also just seems like an intimately honest story from France that speaks more to the experience of growing up and the challenge of finding people to connect with at any age.

Here's the official US trailer (+ new poster) for Suzanne Lindon's Spring Blossom, from YouTube:

Spring Blossom Poster

Suzanne (Suzanne Lindon) is sixteen. She is bored with people her age. Every day to go to high school, she walks past a theater. There she meets a man older than her who becomes her obsession. Thanks to their age difference, they think they are no longer bored together and fall in love. But Suzanne feels that she risks missing out on her life, that of her sixteen years that she had such a hard time living like the others. Spring Blossom, originally known as Seize Printemps in French, is both written and directed by first-time filmmaker Suzanne Lindon, making her directorial debut with this film. She is the daughter of renowned French actor Vincent Lindon. This was chosen as an official selection at the 2020 Cannes Film Festival last year, then it later showed at both the Toronto and San Sebastián Film Festivals in the fall. It has yet to open in France (due to pandemic delays keeping cinemas closed). KimStim will release Lindon's Spring Blossom in select theaters (NY & LA) in the US starting on May 21st coming soon. Still intrigued in seeing this film?
