Something in the Air / Apres Mai (Olivier Assayas, 2012, France)

Here we have a well made bit of nostalgia. If you've ever spent much time in Europe you'll know that the spring of 1968 is as deep a well of nostalgia for Europeans as Woodstock is for Americans. The actors are nice, the filming is nice, the music is nice, but overall I didn't find the story or the characters terribly interesting. It felt too much like a bit of navel gazing nostalgia. Some priveleged artists play at bourgeois revolution.
