Movie Info

On a seemingly ordinary night in Paris, Pierre takes one last look his lover Paul's sleeping body, then takes off into the early morning light. Where he's headed, neither of them know. Pierre's only guide is his Grindr app, which leads him on a series of encounters with an indelible cast of characters across the French countryside. Paul sets out after him, using his own phone to track Pierre's movements in a strange and wonderful game of Grindr cat-and-mouse. Jérôme Reybaud's assured feature debut is "an erotic road movie like no other" (Film Society of Lincoln Center) and an "ode to cruising writ large" (Slant). It's a tale imbued with sensuality, humor and surprising tenderness. Sumptuously shot by Sabine Lancelin (Rohmer's Boyfriends and Girlfriends, Oliveira's The Strange Case of Angelica) and featuring a supporting a cast of familiar faces from French cinema, 4 Days in France offers a sophisticated take on gay romance in the 21st century.

Critic Reviews for 4 Days in France (Jours de France)

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (18) | Rotten (2)

  • At nearly two and a half hours, the film feels a little overlong, but the acute sense of transience makes a strong impression.

  • Writer-director Jérôme Reybaud has crafted an assured film for his narrative-feature debut. "4 Days in France" has a strong vision, even as its protagonist simply wanders across France.

  • While Mr. Reybaud has exemplary artistic confidence and an interesting vision, this is a movie that in many ways defines or justifies the "not for everybody" critical hedge.

  • What makes 4 Days In France special, though, is that it's far more expansive than its basic premise would suggest.

  • A sly, sexy and strangely disarming cruise along the queerer backroads of rural France that marks an intriguing debut for writer-director Jérôme Reybaud.
