A chat with filmmaker Carine Tardieu, director of The Young Lovers, starring Fanny Ardant and Melvil Poupaud. The film was presented at the 2021 Rome Film Fest. This interview was recorded at the festival’s red carpet.
The Young Lovers: Seventy-year-old Shauna, a sophisticated, free-spirited and independent woman and a retired architect, has shelved her love life altogether, but one day she accidently runs into Pierre, a forty-five-year-old happily married doctor and father, who had made a deep impression on her during a brief encounter fifteen years earlier. He still sees her as an attractive woman, but they are both wary of starting a relationship. While Pierre’s family life soon falls apart, Shauna fights against emotions and feelings that she thought were only in the past.
