Review this movie
Aug 17, 2012Sweet and harmless, this film evokes emotion and memories. As a viewer who's at the same age as the characters in the film, I can relate to some of the things and still learn from how much the characters change and mature themselves, regardless how their relationship evolves.

We think of first love as sweet and valuable, a blessed if hazardous condition. This film, deeper than it seems, dares to suggest that beyond a certain point, it can represent a tragedy.
Goodbye First Love doesn't badger the viewer into drawing conclusions. It's interested in showing, with great compassion, how Camille comes to a fuller understanding of the world and herself, without the sort of prefab lessons more often found in films than in real life.
