Frankly I was disappointed in this show, very lackluster and almost completely void of emotion. Also the lead character sexuality was quite ambiguous, if that was intentional or not I really can't say.

How can a friend, your best, hide everything about family? That was my first thought about the events in this film. definitely weird story: a mother that can accept his child has died, a mayor who feels guilty for the death and a friend that doesn't know how to express himself about his best friend's death. A very stormy exploration about everybody's feelings for A main topic: unexpeted death.

Le deuil est un theme difficile a traiter cinematographiquement. Cherchant a eviter l'eccueil du pathos et du melo, Franck Guerin tombe dans l'autre, c'est a dire la torpeur qui se tranforme peu a peu en ennui. Je suis par ailleurs de plus en plus retif a ce type de films qui, a force de refuser de livrer toutes les reponses clef en mains au public, finissent par ne plus proposer grand-chose et à demander aux spectateurs d'ecrire eux-memes le scenario en se contentant d'aligner les jolies images. A ce sujet, Theo Frilet est toujours aussi craquant. Baptiste Bertin aussi, mais son jeu très "jeune acteur du cinema francais" -- c'est a dire que sa seule activite semble de travailler a n'avoir aucune expression ni faire passer aucune emotion -- finit par couper l'empathie.

Beautiful, young; and heavily repressing at the same time. Another comin'-off age story about a confusing adolescent boy dealin' with his enormous emotion & sexuality.
