Matthias & Maxime 2019

Matthias & 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.

Critic Reviews for Matthias & Maxime

All Critics (70) | Top Critics (16) | Fresh (46) | Rotten (24)

  • If the overall effect is a little basic and under-worked, this is still a heartfelt, honest film.

    Time Out
    Top Critic
  • This is a film with big emotions and swoon-worthy wet hair moments, and it finds unexpected places in the subconscious to settle.

    Top Critic
  • The way Dolan chooses to frame things, the visual choices he makes, the way he revels unashamed in the big-ness of the emotions, makes it an entertaining ride.

    August 28, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • An attenuated tease, a dreary dance of will-they-or-won't-they romantic provocation.

    August 27, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Unfortunately, the new film Matthias & Maxime arrives lacking much of the emotional urgency of the Dolan who once captured the international art-house crowd, feeling provincial in more ways than one.

    October 10, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Xavier Dolan shows a new restraint and romantic tenderness... He breathes fragrant life into a familiar story of unspoken longing.
