This chapter explores three movies of André Téchiné that are based on families and sexualities. Le Lieu du crime (1986), co-scripted with Pascal Bonitzer and Olivier Assayas, seems to invite a straightforward Freudian reading, with an ‘incestuous’ or excessively close relationship between mother and son. The second movie, Ma Saison préférée (1993), provided Téchiné with his biggest box-office success. Ma Saison préférée seeks to portray three generations of the same family and is the most Bergmanesque of Téchiné's films, in its emphasis on relationships rather than plot, its extensive use of close-ups and its obsession with time. The third movie, Les Roseaux sauvages (1994), develops the idea of unfinished aspirant by portraying a group of teenagers doing the baccalauréat.
