Suzanne is 16. She is bored with people of her age. Every day on her way to high school, she passes a theater. There, she meets an older man, and becomes obsessed with him. Despite their age difference, they find in each other an answer to their ennui and fall in love. But Suzanne is afraid she’s missing out on life – that life of a 16-year-old, which she had struggled so much to enjoy in the same way as her peers.

“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 The result is a very contemporary atmosphere, but also the almost outdated charm of a love affair made of furtive looks and few words.” Cineuropa

“Suzanne Lindon is an undeniable talent, and with Spring Blossom she’s crafted a genuinely involving slice-of-life tale.” Film Stage

"Provocative and original." Hollywood Reporter

"Lindon creates a portrait of first love which is fresh, honest and engaging." Screen Daily
