"Le Péril Jeune" (1994) is a French tragicomedy/teen movie by Cédric Klapisch, the director who later make similar films like "L' Auberge Espagnole" (2002) ("The Spanish Apartment") and "Les Poupées Russes" ("The Russian Dolls") (2005).


The story of "Le Péril Jeune" takes at a reunion of four friends who left high school ten years ago. They come together to meet for the birth of the child of one of their late friends, who died one month earlier of a drug overdose. We then see flashbacks of their youth during their last year in their Parisian high school during the 1970s, where they came into contact with drugs and sex.
