Directed by Jeanne Moreau, L’Adolescente is a sensitive family drama set on the eve of WWII. In 1939, Marie, a Parisian girl, spends her summer holidays in a village in the Auvergne region with her loving and affectionate grandmother (Simone Signoret). Discovering her feminity, she falls passionately in love with a young Jewish doctor (Francis Huster) who has a short-lived affair with her mother (Edith Clever). These holidays mark the end of a carefree existence before the war breaks.
