Matthias and Maxime

Critics Consensus

Matthias and Maxime enchants almost as much as it frustrates, although Xavier Dolan fans may appreciate seeing the writer-director working at a more restrained pitch.

  • Yet despite its simple plot remains an idiosyncratic energy Dolan is intent on keeping, and for most of its two hours, that's enough to get by.

  • Xavier Dolan's latest is a step-up from his previous two films but still doesn't capture the emotional or narrative heights of his 2014 film Mommy.

  • Mr. Dolan, who also wrote and directed, is interested in what shapes a person's identity - or what a person allows to shape their identity.

  • The film is vivid and edgy, packed with beautifully played moments and some real emotion. But it ends just when it begins to get properly powerful.

    October 22, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Life-long companions, they are magnets repeatedly being drawn back together; no matter how hard they try to fight it, it is almost impossible to resist.

  • M&M...is shot on film to rather grey effect, with clunky, handheld camera moves further dulling down a story that never gives us enough rooting interest in its protagonists to actually care about the ampersand between their names.
