Mektoub, My Love (15) English, French
Amin, an aspiring screenwriter and photographer, returns to his hometown, a fishing village in the south of France, after living a year in Paris.

The summer lights of the Mediterranean coast guide his quest for love, as he hopes to live a passionate romance like in the movies. Surrounded by his loving family, who sometimes helps and often hinders, Amin searches to find his own way.

This coming-of-age saga set in 1994 casts a nostalgic glow on losing the innocence of youth.
