A chronicle of the romance between Camille and Sullivan, which begins during their adolescence and picks up after Sullivan's 8-year absence from exploring the world.
Camille has fallen in love with cheerful Sullivan (Sebastian Urzendowsky), an older boy. Fifteen-year-old Camille (Lola Créton) is a serious, intensely focused girl who has extremely strong feelings. When he leaves her to travel through South America, she is devastated.
Over the next eight years she develops into a more fully formed woman, with new interests and a new love - and the possibility that she'll be less defenceless when Sullivan enters her life again. Loosely based on critically acclaimed director Mia Hansen-Løve's own experiences and subsequent relationship with Olivier Assayas, ‘Goodbye First Love’ is filled with scenes that showcase her extraordinary ability to evoke moods and feelings. Following the romantic exploits of an intellectual, bourgeois young girl, this recalls the works of Eric Rohmer. (subtitles)
