Donne-moi la main (Give Me Your Hand) Reviews
It's basically a tale of a fraternal relationship. There isn't much story. The journey is punctuated with sexual encounters and some rather physical fights between the two brothers.
There is a character arc here...kind of, but it is clumsily done. It's very well shot, but there isn't anything memorable and the end of the film is an inelegant finish.
Antoine and Quentin the handsome twins could not look more alike and be as different as day and night. They are used to people come and go into their lives bringing joy and pain. "Where are you going?" one of the twins asked, but there was no answer, she just kept walking away, it was the natural thing to do.
Life is a bunch of chances, "Que Sera, Sera" (Whatever Will Be, Will Be) and we are riding along this amazingly written, directed and acted independent film. The images are beautiful the soundtrack is hunting and the very close brothers are astounding. You don't want them to hurt each other or be separated, but they do and we care. They communicate through feelings and deep emotions, they sense each other even if they are not together. I wanted the film to keep going and going, to go across the universe and back, I would have never gotten tired riding along.
