L'Etudiante aka The Student, Dan Pavlides, All Movie Guide

Twenty-one-year-old Valentine (Sophie Marceau) works part time as a teacher while she prepares for her all-important final exams.

She meets Edouard (Vincent Lindon), a rock musician who hopes to someday be a composer. Despite the fact that the two have different schedules and career agendas, they engage in a passionate affair.

Valentine compares her relationship with Edouard to the dry dissertation of Moliere's The Misanthrope during her oral exams at the Sorbonne.
