Being 17

Movie

Damien, the son of a military family, lives in barracks in south-western France with his mother, a doctor, while his father is away in the Central African Republic.

As a gay teenager, Damien is given a hard time by a boy at school, Tom, whose adoptive mother falls ill.

The repulsion and violence they display to one another takes on a darker shade when Damien's mother decides to take in Tom to live with them.

Well into his 70s, Andre Techine delivers his most youthful film yet, a tale of burgeoning gay romance co-written by Celine Sciamma.

André Téchiné does justice to the closeness between repulsion and desire, difference and sameness.
