La Bande de Drugstore is the debut feature from writer/director Francois Armanet, who adapted the script from his own novel. Set in Paris during the 1960s, a group of stylish teenagers hang out at a club called the Drugstore. Shy Philippe Challes (Mathieu Simonet) wants to meet a girl but he doesn't know how to go about it. Experienced Nathalie (Alice Taglioni) invites him and his friend Marc (Aurelien Wiik) to the birthday party of the also quite shy Charlotte (Cecile Cassel). Philippe and Charlotte develop a strong interest in each other, but neither one seems to know what to do about it. Philippe also tries to pick up girls with his friend Pierre (Laurent Pialet), while Nathalie finds herself attracted to Charlotte's father (Thierry Lhermitte). The '60s pop rock soundtrack features Aretha Franklin, Sonny & Cher, and Otis Redding.
