Visually, Beyond Hatred is precise, handsome -- even brilliant.
Director Olivier Meyrou takes a potently oblique vérité approach, and his remarkable level of access reveals the limitations and equivocal mercies of human understanding with uncommon grace.
An example of a film whose style doesn't merely suit its story but amplifies its meanings.
Paced like a drama, imbued with a spellbinding intimacy, and impressionistic in its visual portrayal of crime and punishment, it follows the 2002 murder of Francois Chenu, a gay man beaten by Nazi skinheads and left to drown in a nearby pond in Reims.
Thankfully, Meyrou's intent isn't to launch a predictable crusade against homophobia itself, but to quietly understand the factors that molded this young trio into senseless killers.
Exemplifies the finest French traditions of dignified rationalism in the pursuit of understanding - in both personal and judicial contexts.
A documentary that celebrates a cathartic act of forgiveness and reconciliation by a grieving family whose gay son was brutally murdered.
Absorbingly covers the 2002 murder in Reims, France, of 29-year-old homosexual François Chenu.
Through a series of interviews, we see the effect inexplicable hatred and murder has on an ordinary family.
It all has a cumulatively lulling effect, if a nightmare could ever be described so.
a contemplative, almost poetic examination of the proper workings of justice, and an exemplary depiction of a ruined family rebuilt on the foundations of its own humanistic values.
Olivier Meyrou may keep his distance from his subjects, but staying out of their way doesn't mean losing sight of their troubles.
