Critic Reviews for Come Undone
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.
Audience Reviews for Come Undone
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.
