The U.S. trailer for "Something In The Air" has arrived, and it nicely transmits the aura of revolt, romance and rebellion the picture embodies. Tracking a coming-of-age tale against the backdrop of the French political awakening of the 1970s, the film presents a potent, and heightened blend of emotions, and that seems to come through nicely in this spot. And oh yeah, its classic rock soundtrack is pretty choice as well, and it's a safe bet the tunes are ones that Assayas listened to himself.
“To recreate the mood of those times and to get it right, I used incidents of my youth because at least I was able to work on something solid. I kind of built the film from there, which means I constantly moved away from autobiography because you don't really do a biography on film. It's like fiction. When you write fiction you start from your own experience and you use your own emotions and that's what makes it genuine in a certain way,” the director told us last year.
"Something in the Air" will hit theaters via Sundance Selects on May 3rd. Watch below.
