Movie Info

In this film, teen-aged Lucien aspires to become a filmmaker and to that end organizes his friends into a film unit. The young cineasts hope to make a journey into Africa to film an uncompromisingly realistic documentary. Amusingly, Lucien and his friends are shown to be rather ill-equipped for "real life."

An interseting portrait of the period, it provides refreshing roles for a number of newcomers.
