An official selection at Cannes, San Sebastian, and TIFF, this charming debut feature from 20-year-old Suzanne Lindon offers a bold and exploratory twist on a coming-of-age tale. Lindon plays Suzanne, a 16-year-old student daydreaming through a mundane high-school spring. While walking home, she catches sight of a handsome theater actor, Raphaël, similarly lost in his own thoughts. They’re intrigued by each other, and their conversations eventually whisk them into a world of their own, which Lindon brings to life with freewheeling musical numbers and oneiric vignettes. A refreshing jaunt with a hidden wavelength, Spring Blossom coaxes Suzanne’s dreams out into the open.

“Suzanne Lindon is an undeniable talent, and with Spring Blossom she’s crafted a genuinely involving slice-of-life tale.”
— Film Stage
“ Lindon creates a portrait of first love which is fresh, honest and engaging.”
— Screen Daily
“A very refreshing film, packed with references yet original.
The result is a very contemporary atmosphere,
but also the almost outdated charm of a love affair made of furtive looks and few words.”
