Every social group is reduced to the crudest cliché.
Moving seamlessly between stage and screen enactments, Guillaume, who plays both himself and his neurotic, chain-smoking mum, concocts plenty of blackly comic moments.
Funny, thoughtful and bubbling over with feeling, the feature shines brightest and rings truest when its driving force is at his best -- which, thankfully, is most of its brief running time.
Any self-pity is outweighed by a healthy dose of self-deprecating humour.
Quirky, yes, but perhaps not as commercially approachable as it was in France, where screen culture is more adventurous and experimentation is welcomed
Family relationships and sexuality are the main focus of this quirky, funny and revealing film whose journey culminates in a flourish of emotional ballast
The twist on the coming-of-age story makes this stylized comedy intriguing up to a point, but Gallienne's decision to retain the theatrical and confessional nature of the show ... starts to grate after a while.
Once you adjust to the exuberant theatricality and goofy comedy it does start to grow on you.
Based on Gallienne's one-man theatre show, the film camps its way through flamenco-style dancing, a German spa, sexual near-misses and an English boarding school.
It takes a bit of effort to get into Les garçons et Guillaume, à table!, but it's worth the work.
Gallienne is the androgynous clown minus the costume that wants us to laugh and cry with him.
[It reminded] the Cannes audience that it was okay to laugh. Lightweight, but winningly amusing.
Gallienne is downright amazing playing two roles in this delicate autobiographical comedy - an expertly-edited film that finds a perfect tonal balance as it moves effortlessly from hilarious to touching moments without ever becoming heavy-handed.
