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.

All Critics (51) | Top Critics (12) | Fresh (31) | Rotten (20)

  • 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.

  • Dolan may not have made his masterpiece yet, but this is more than fine for now.

  • There was a time when I used to wish that Dolan would settle down a little-the manic energy of his work could be exhausting. But if this is the alternative, I take it all back.

  • Matthias & Maxime is filmed all in tightly pressed close-up, faces looming, constantly erupting into furious rows, shouting and shrieking. It's like being at the worst party ever.

    May 24, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • There is such tenderness and gentleness in this film.
