Childhood Retournade is a French film, considered by many the magnum opus of amateur 1980s French filmmaker "Je Suis", part of his Lemoufir period. Few copies exist; The only available format for this work is VHS, largely via pirated copies.


The film consists largely of humorous interviews between Je Suis and his ten-year-old self; at times Je Suis dresses in drag and answers the question as if he were "Polly Panelle," a fictional Parisian fashion magnate. Little else is known, as half the film is missing from the extant copies, including the name of the child portraying Young Je Suis.
