Movie Info

L'Homme Que J'Aime (The Man I Love), a Gallic feature from director Stephane Giusti, is both a gay coming-out story and semi-tragic tale of love gone askew. Originally made for French television in 1997, L'Homme Que J'Aime chronicles the developing love triangle between brash pool monitor Martin (Marcial Di Fonzo Bo), resident lifeguard Lucas (Jean-Michel Portal), and his live-in girlfriend, Lise (Mathilde Seigner). Though Lucas initially meets Martin's advances with cold resistance, he begins to enjoy his presence when Lise unsuspectingly incorporates Martin into their lackluster social life. Eventually, what Lucas believed was his heterosexuality begins to weaken, and the young pro-diver finds himself falling for Martin. More complications arise, however, when Martin's HIV-positive status is revealed, and Lucas wonders if he should leave Lise for a terminally ill man he happens to love.

Touching and well acted, but I found in oddly unconvincing. Good direction, nice cinematography and it has style. Well made, the characters develop well.
