      93% Tomatometer 45 Reviews 46% Audience Score Fewer than 50 Ratings Suzanne (Suzanne Lindon) is sixteen. She is bored with people her own age. From the outside, everything appears lovely in her charmed world, but the everyday monotony of school and her relationships with friends and family feels completely uninspired. Every day on her way to high school, she passes a theater. There, she meets a 35-year-old actor named Raphaël (Arnaud Valois, BPM (Beats Per Minute )). Despite their age difference they find in each other an answer to their ennui and develop a strong connection. Immersed in the world of grown-ups and adult choices, Suzanne begins questioning the pitfalls of blossoming too quickly and missing out on life -- the life of a 16-year-old, which she had struggled so much to enjoy in the same way as her peers.

      Angie Han FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) I appreciated how much it takes her experience, her feelings, and her agency without judgment or handwringing. Jun 3, 2021 Full Review Katie Walsh Los Angeles Times Such a confident and self-assured debut would be remarkable for a filmmaker of any age, as "Spring Blossom" is a finely wrought, sensitively felt and artistically bold work. May 24, 2021 Full Review Beatrice Loayza New York Times Lindon's... work occasionally feels like a pastiche. At the same time, she rejects the trope of the angsty teenager, capturing adolescent alienation with buoyancy and subtle whimsy. May 20, 2021 Full Review Erick Estrada Cinegarage What Suzanne Lindon achieves in Spring Blossom is truly surprising, and her voice is clear and heartfelt. [Full review in Spanish] Sep 7, 2022 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies It’s a far cry from conventional storytelling which is pretty impressive coming from a filmmaker just beginning what could be a wonderful career in cinema. Rated: 3.5/5 Aug 17, 2022 Full Review Júlia Gaitano Mendizábal El antepenúltimo mohicano The mere fact that a voice as young as that of the director Suzanne Lindon makes its way into the current vast audiovisual panorama is something to celebrate.

      Audience Member A beautifully bad example of nepotism...or how a 21yo is given to make a movie about nothing because she is the daughter of stars actors. Completely shallow, a movie about things nobody care and the sweet torment of privileges. It's not even well written or acted and has nothing for it going on. It cannot even manage well its influence. Only good thing here it is smart enough to be pretty short. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review brent m I'm completely at a loss to understand the undeserving fascination with this highly unfocused, heavily padded, meandering tale of a teenager bored with her peer group who falls in love with a 35-year-old actor. Though billed as a romance and a comedy, it's not much of either, but then that's probably because this isn't much of a movie. The script is so slight that it's hard to fathom what the real story was intended to be, due to its inconsequential dialogue, uninspired narrative and a plethora of sequences that are wholly mundane. As a consequence, writer-actor-director Suzanne Lindon's debut feature quickly becomes a tedious bore, and that's with a scant 73-minute runtime, too. Pay no attention to the hype that critics are lauding on this underdeveloped, meritless mess. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member No beginning. No ending. The whole thing could've been filmed in 5 minutes. Absolute waste of time. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member Adorable feel good movie of internal happiness above the mundane Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
