Come Undone is the coming-of-age romance French-style, with emotions nuanced, effects subtle. But it's also achingly slow, at times bleak and, in the end, frustratingly and regrettably, rather pointless.
While Come Undone has some explicit material, what makes it a mature and special work is its embrace of the knotty and unfamiliar.
Those who like to explore movies will find plenty to admire.
Although Come Undone deals with serious, difficult subjects ... it handles them kindly and with little angst.
A delicately managed piece that is by turns intimately detailed and elliptical.
Sticks to a standard of emotional honesty in following Mathieu's journey, and casting a shrewd eye as he stumbles toward self-awareness.
The sex scenes are bluntly beautiful, the boys are natural, superb actors, and you'll find yourself more than ready to embrace "Come Undone" as one of the great tales of amour.
It is heartfelt, and is full of intense feelings and insights into love.
Hopefully, even those who fail to accept the director's stylistic experiments will still appreciate the beautifully acted, disarming picture of youth and love.
If you found films like But I'm a Cheerleader or Edge of Seventeen profoundly unimaginative, Sebastien Lifshitz, making his directorial debut, has something to show you.
If you leave the theater for even a minute, you'll be lost, given the way Come Undone jumps around.
A highly credible, if rather unexceptional, look at the many insecurities and occasional joys of young love.
The actors seem very natural together, depicting well the intensity and wonders of first love, but the movie has a big problem in its fragmented narrative, which jumps randomly between two moments in time and so the story becomes less fluid and not very easy to relate to.
Presque Rien relies heavily on the talent from the leading actors to unfold this tale of romance and pain. I really did not like the jump cuts which changed the narrative from the past to the present, seemed very inconsistent but otherwise it's a great film that many will enjoy.
I can appreciate the story that it trys to tell - a young man trying to come to terms with his sexuality (and all that it entails).
The cast was exceptional. And the potential is there for a very moving and powerful film.
However, with the exception of one fairly graphic sex scene (which was more gratuitous then story strengthening)...I feel that the film is (ultimately) too subtle for it's own good.
[font=Century Gothic]"Come Undone" starts out with Mathieu(Jeremie Elkaim) leaving a city on a train...[/font]
[font=Century Gothic]...then it flashes back to a summer vacation at the beach where 18-year old Mathieu is staying with his sister, Sarah(Laeitia Legrix), and their invalid mother(Dominique Raymond) who is being cared for by Annick(Marie Matheron). One day at the beach, Mathieu meets Cedric(Stephane Rideau), a good looking local man about the same age. Mutual attraction between the two men quickly blossoms into love...[/font]
[font=Century Gothic]...in between the two time frames, Mathieu has just been admitted to a hospital for undisclosed reasons.[/font]
[font=Century Gothic]"Come Undone" has an interesting structure but it is only used to disguise the lackadaisical pacing of the main story line. Still, the film is a worthwhile tale of a young man coming of age and experiencing his first love.[/font]
