Goodbye First Love movie scenes

Paris, 1999. Camille (Lola Créton) is 15 years old and passionately in love and lust with Sullivan (Sebastian Urzendowsky), who is 19. Sullivan is planning a 10-month trip to South America with his friends. He is not taking Camille with him, which makes her feel quite insecure and resentful. Before Sullivan departs, they spend some time in Camille's mountain home in the Ardeche, riding horses through the fields, picking berries, basking in the sun and swimming in the Loire. When they return in autumn Sullivan leaves, writing letters to Camille while she marks his route on a map on her bedroom wall.

Time passes, and Sullivan stops writing. Camille enters in a state of depression and ends up at a hospital after trying to kill herself. But she moves on with her life. In 2003 four years have gone by and Camille is an architecture student. She has moved on with her life, cut her hair, has a job, and slowly begins to fall in love with her professor Lorenz (Magne Håvard-Brekke). Camille sees in Lorenz a stable man that has his life sorted out and makes her feel secure. She begins to work for Lorenz and also suffers a miscarriage. After eight years Camille and Sullivan meet again and she finds herself caught in between her university professor whom she has developed tender feelings for and her first love, whom she has never really forgotten.
