The dreams and scars of a generation: a dozen theatre students devote themselves entirely to the stage – and to life. With far-reaching consequences.

Paris in the 1980s: Stella and Étienne are accepted at Les Amandiers, the renowned Parisian drama school. With the same enthusiasm and intensity that they bring to the stage, they throw themselves into life and a relationship. These two opposites brought together by an irresistible attraction become the center of a spiral of hopes and fears that threatens to throw them and their friends off course.

Drawing from her own biography, director Valeria Bruni Tedeschi delicately paints the portrait of a generation and thus brings an entire era to life. She finds tones and colors that burst with energy and tenderness, chooses gestures and moments that touch deeply. ›Forever Young‹ is a cinema of actors performing at the very highest level, and much more – a shimmering, sensual experience. The director’s masterpiece!


The previous films of the Italian-French director, actress, and screenwriter Valeria Bruni Tedeschi screened at numerous international festivals and received as many prizes.
