A Feature film by André Téchiné

Produced by T Films

Release in France : 15/05/1985


    Nina, a young provincial and a student actress, discovers the Capital. That of her dreams of love and theater. Guided by her instinct, she travels around alone and follows her chance encounters, whether good or bad. On her way, she first meets Paulot, a simple clerk, with a reassuring face of an honest man. Then Quentin, an actor enters into Nina's life. He is a run-down actor, eaten up by a drama in his past. The third person she meets is Scrutzler, a rigid and tired director. He will choose Nina to mold her, throw her on the stage and leave her alone to face herself.

    After making a television production: La Matiouette ou l'arrière-pays (1983), Téchiné returned to critical attention with Rendez-vous (1985), a sexy noir melodrama replete with the seductive surface of the era. In the film a would-be actress, Nina, fleeing her provincial home for Paris, enters a turbulent love relationship with a sadistic, self-destructive young actor, who caused the death of his former girlfriend. When the actor himself is killed in an accident, or possible suicide, his former mentor/director, and father of the dead girlfriend, determines to cast the inexperienced Nina as the female lead in 'Romeo and Juliet', a role his deceased daughter played. The film is ultimately a vehicle for exploring the violent intensity of certain emotional attachments and their ability to cause one's life to spin off in unexpected directions. By now a key director of the post-New Wave, this film earned Téchiné the Cannes Festival Best Direction Award while helping launch the career of Juliette Binoche.
