Born in 68 (original title: Nés en 68) is a 2008 French drama film directed by Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau. The film has the sub-title 'Nous nous aimerons jusqu'à la mort' ('We will love each other until death').

Plot summary[edit]

In 1968 Catherine, Yves and Hervé are 20, all students in Paris; the May revolt up-ends their lives. They attempt to form their own community with friends on an abandoned farm in the Lot. Their need for freedom and individual fulfilment leads them to make choices which separates them in the end with Catherine alone remaining at the farm. In 1989 the children of Catherine and Yves become adults in a world that has profoundly changed: with the end of communism and the AIDS epidemic, they revisit the militant legacy of the previous generation. Much like their parents before them, they begin to question the generation that preceded them, while fighting for a better world than the one into which they were born.
