Two boys in the french Pyrenees mountains: Damien is a high school student, more cerebral than physical, and in the throes of a simmering enmity with classmate Tom, which soon comes to blows. Withdrawn loner Tom is the adopted son of a couple who run a remote mountain farm. you don’t have to be a Téchiné scholar to guess at the underlying psychological causes of the two boys’ enmity; the film opens up a web of contradictory emotions for all concerned.
Co-scripted by Céline Sciamma (GIRLHOOD), BEING 17 manifestly benefits from her insight into the problems of young people searching for their social and sexual identities; this, combined with Téchiné’s controlled vision and superb direction of actors, makes the new film a quietly potent proposition. (Jonathan Romney)
