Avoiding the clichés of the teen film, Pialat's Graduate First is a minutely observed, uncommonly honest profile of disaffected French youth in a northern provincial city. The film follows the aimless adventures of a group of students who see little point in finishing their baccalauréat when the future promises nothing but dead-end jobs or grinding unemployment. Instead, they drift from bistro to beach, engage in sex, bicker with their uncomprehending parents or set out for Paris. (KG)
