One Hundred Days After Childhood (1974)
Falling in love with a long-familiar girl like a sunstroke, with bouts of dizziness, despite her tender age, is at the center of Sergei Solovyov’s lyrical story about a summer camp that has become a Rubicon for children who will soon become adults. A love quadrangle with rehearsals for the play “Masquerade”, walks through emerald meadows, talk about the Mona Lisa and education of feelings will become a drama for everyone – invisible and almost unspoken.
“The shoulders of a calf, the heart of a child,” the nurse will say about them, and she will be right: deceptively tall and looking at each other with adult eyes, the characters still know themselves and each other very poorly and have no idea what they need from first love. Or maybe, as the protagonist says, you don’t need to want anything from another – and you just need to carry the memory of the first feeling deep in your heart, like a perfect portrait of Mona Lisa.
Say Anything… (1989)
Comedy drama, Teen, Romance
A teen classic and timeless movie about dating a girl everyone you know is too good for you. John Cusack plays a rather strange, moderately funny high school student who dares to fall in love with the school’s star and common favorite Diana. Diana has an authoritarian dad, big plans to study abroad and only one summer to spend with friends: already in the middle of the holidays it turns out that this is not just the love of schoolchildren before college. Cameron Crowe put together a warm film of great young actors, songs from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Depeche Mode and Peter Gabriel, and spices up the vanilla plot with realistic details about an overprotective family, petty phobias and love knocking you down in early adolescence. Almost 30 years later, his melodrama looks fresher than most modern rom-coms and laughs like the first time.
Before trilogy (1995-2013)
Richard Linklater’s almost 20-year-old trilogy began with the idea of a single film about a day in a strange city where a young American and a French woman meet, fall in love and spend 24 hours together. Sparse in setting – we’re mostly looking at Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy – and rich in detail, Before Dawn explored the mechanics of first love, flirting and romance, inspired by the weightless stories of European “New Wave” feelings. One day in Vienna became a hit – and the film was continued in Before Sunset and Before Midnight: every time we have the same heroes 9 years later – confused and insecure, losing hope and wanting self-realization, gaining experience and making mistakes before our eyes.
