  • A politically naïve and protracted slice of dewy-eyed nostalgia.

  • What promises to be an epic story of a group of hippy radicals from May 1968 to the present, gradually unwinds into a long, long soap opera.

  • There's a sense that this lengthy family saga might also be best enjoyed as an episodic TV drama.

  • The problem is not length but shallowness.

    September 25, 2009 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Despite its admirable ambitions, Born in 68 feels like an inferior imitation of The Best Of Youth, with some talented actors let down by an inferior screenplay and unimaginative cinematography.

    September 25, 2009 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • While watchable in a soapy way, TV level dialogue and script offer few surprises, and characters feel at the mercy of the next big bit of history Ducastel and Martineau have lined up.

Audience Reviews for Nés en 68 (Born in 68)

  • Jul 29, 2010
    "Born in 68" starts in the heady days of student protests of May 1968. Catherine(Laetitia Casta) has other things on her mind as she has an illegal abortion after having been knocked up by Yves(Yannick Renier) and/or Herve(Yann Tregouet). There are complications and she is rushed to a hospital by her friend Caroline(Kate Moran) while the guys distract the police. While recuperating at home, Catherine hides Jeremie, a draft dodger, from the police. After things have calmed down, he informs the group of a farm in the country where they can start a commune and Catherine and Yves can start a family. However, Maryse(Christine Citti), a perplexed but friendly neighbor, informs them that Jeremie may not have been entirely forthright... "Born in 68" is a multigenerational epic that tells a political story of France from 1968 to the present day, as the years skip by in a flash, in personal terms. In days of conflict, violence, which never solved anything, lurks in all corners, from police, temptation and the past. Even as a larger revolution may have failed, other changes were more successful as the idea of self-determination was defined as being more than just about the ballot box, especially on the subject of abortion and gay rights.(Knowing little of French political history, I had previously assumed that French presidents were all left of center until Sarkozy. Maybe it's all a matter of perspective.) The movie does not sugargoat the experience of commune life(a reminder of how hard it is to get a unanimous consensus on anything), even with free love and naked frolicking going on, so relax. As the characters' destinies are laid out, I would still have liked to know what happened to Caroline since she is a central part of the early story.
