June 1940. German troops are advancing on Paris. Odile, a widowed teacher, and her two children, Philippe and Cathy, join the exodus from the city. After fifty kilometres, a German plane attacks, decimating the helpless refugees. Odile and her children lose everything. A shaven-headed youth appears from nowhere and leads them away from the carnage. His name is Yvan, he's seventeen years old.

Decent and interesting, like a lot of André Téchiné's movies, particularly J'embrasse pas and La fille du RER. The Witnesses is worth a look too, though the Swedish series Don't Ever Wipe Tears Without Gloves is much better. However, Wild Reeds was definitely Téchiné's best work and he's made nothing else that comes near it, except the recent Being 17. And Being 17 is so good partly because it was co-written by Céline Sciamma, who made the excellent coming-of-age films Water Lilies, Tomboy and Girlhood.My Movie Rating: 7 / 10
