“The inspiration for the critically acclaimed film
Falcon Lake, “superbly crafted debut”–Variety.

Directed by Charlotte Le Bon based on the
graphic novel A Sister by Bastien Vives. Movie scheduled for release Summer

A coming of age story in the
tradition of Tillie Walden’s

Antoine, 13 years old, is on
holiday at the seaside with his parents and his younger brother, Titi. Both
spend most of their time drawing, at restaurants and on the beach. One night,
Antoine discovers another person lying in their bedroom. Helene is
16 years old; she and her mother came to spend a few days and her presence and
behavior will change Antoine’s life.

In “A
Sister”, Bastien Vives, a master of suggestion, conveys the stumbling
awakenings of adolescent desire. The story is a narrative jewel, created by one
of the most important authors of the contemporary international graphic novel

Publisher Review

Great art! ZOO A sensitive and touching story. BD CHANNEL Vives knows how to relate intimacy, desire and embarrassment. It is an album to read and reread. DBD Don't miss one of the best comics of the year. TMAGAZINE Bastien Vives manages to bring out in small touches, by the positions of his characters, by their looks, by the simplicity of their conversations, the power, the ambivalence and the sweetness of feelings. WEEKLY BOOKS This paper teen-movie has a universal force, enough thickness and troubled reliefs that we cannot sum it up to a summer romance. THE INROCKUPTIBLES
