Falcon Lake, Charlotte Le Bon's touching first film: review and trailer

Published by Nathanaël de Sortiraparis · Published on December 8th, 2022 at 11:38 a.m.
The actress Charlotte Le Bon goes behind the camera for the first time for "Falcon Lake", a beautiful adaptation of the comic strip "A Sister", by Bastien Vivès. The film is expected in theaters on December 7, 2022.

When you see the synopsis of Falcon Lake, you may be surprised by its brevity: "A story of love and ghosts", a false simplicity behind which hides a magnificent try for the actress Charlotte Le Bon(The Walk, Yves Saint Laurent, The Big Bad Wolf), who goes for the first time behind the camera. The filmmaker was inspired byUne Soeur, the graphic novel by Bastien Vivès. The result, a favorite film of the year. Scheduled for release on December 7, 2022.

The trailer of Falcon Lake

We discover Bastien, 13 years old, "soon 14", he says, who spends the summer with friends of his parents. There he meets their daughter, Chloé, 16 years old. Between the two young teenagers, the current passes quickly, and while the young boy is in love, the girl takes him under her wing. The two young actors, Joseph Engel (seen in Louis Garrel's first films) and Sara Montpetit, are quite impressive, and their chemistry is beautiful to see.

This is a story of initiation, the story of a summer of all first times, as cinema knows dozens of them, but this one has a very special flavor. Like the protagonists, we don't want this summer, this bubble, to end. These teenage loves are overwhelming, carefree, touching, necessarily tragic. And this tinge of fantasy completes the atmosphere and the unique setting of Falcon Lake.
