Abdellatif Kechiche's latest film is a breath-taking saga of coming of age, sexuality and hedonism set in 1994.

Amin, an aspiring screenwriter living in Paris, returns home for the summer, to a fishing village in the South of France. It is a time of reconnecting with his family and his childhood friends. Together with his cousin and his best friend, he spends his time between the Tunisian restaurant run by his parents, the local bars and the beaches frequented by girls on holiday. Enchanted by the many female characters who surround him, Amin remains in awe of these summer sirens while his cousin throws himself into their carnal delights with euphoria. Armed with his camera, Amin seeks inspiration for his screenplays. When it comes to love, only mektoub ("destiny" in Arabic) can decide.

"I would like to restitute to cinema its sacred dimension, the sense of going to the movies as if partaking in a ceremony. Even if many think that this is an illusion, I have the intimately held conviction that cinema is part of a new human era that is a real possibility. And as much as a filmmaker, I am a craftsman of this hope. If I lost this utopian ideal within myself, I would not have the longing to make films." (Abdellatif Kechiche)
