Something In The Air


French director Olivier Assayas directs his next movie after the biopic of Carlos the Jackal

French director Olivier Assayas follows his biopic of Carlos the Jackal with this semi-autobiographical tale of post-1968 revolutionaries. 

It opens with the clash between Parisian police and activists in 1971, then tracks a group of students as they mobilise, their left-wing ideologies informed by love, art and the encroachment of reality. 

Sincere and unsentimental, this warmly lensed, fluently edited drama is studded by outstanding set-pieces and wry humour. 

The period soundtrack is exceptional.
