An epic drama about life and sexual politics in France in the late '60s, BORN IN '68 stars actress and super model Laetitia Casta and is directed by Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau. A national phenomenon in France, Laetitia Casta, who gives a truly memorable performance as the beautiful and impetuous Catherine, has been the face of L'Oreal, Dior and Chanel and has appeared on over 100 magazine covers.
Catherine, Yves (Yannick Renier) and Herve (Yann Tregouët) are 20 years old. They are students and they love each other. The infamous Paris revolts in May turn their lives upside down. Filled with a sense of communal utopia, along with a few friends, they move to an abandoned farm in the countryside. However, the years of free love are short-lived, as their ambitions and pursuit of personal fulfilment leads to choices that will tear them apart.
Catherine and Yves' children are young, excitable adults who embody a world very different to the one their parents were borne from. Between the end of Communism and the explosion of AIDS, cracks begin to appear in the militant heritage that moulded the generation before them. Through their differences, relationships are severed, cultivated and reconciled against the backdrop of a series of political and historical events that changed the world forever.
BORN in '68 is a beautifully shot saga that boldly looks at politics, society and love from generation to generation.
