Synopsis:
Long unavailable, this deeply felt coming-of-age drama by Olivier Assayas has until now been a missing link in one of contemporary cinema's richest bodies of work. Drawing from his own youthful experiences, Assayas revisits the outskirts of Paris in the early 1970's, telling the story of teenage lovers Gilles (Cyprien Fouquet) and Christine (Virginie Ledoyen), whose rebellions against family and society threaten to tear them apart. The visceral realism of the movie's narrative and the near experimentalism of its camera work come together effortlessly thanks in part to a rock soundtrack that vividly evokes the period.
'Cold Water', whose centerpiece is one of the most memorable party sequences ever committed to film, is a heartbreaking immersion in the emotional tumult of being young.

Would have been better if it had stayed a MISSING link - Cold Water review by SC

Spoiler Alert

It's a bit like that film If... but doesn't follow through to the blaze of glory at the end. In fact, it's not glorious at all.
