Movie Info

Martin Clement, born Marvin Bijou, fled. He fled his little village of Vosges. He fled his family, the tyranny of his father, the resignation of his mother. He fled intolerance and rejection, the bullying to which everything that made him a "different" boy exposed him. Against and against everything, he has nevertheless found allies. First, Madeleine Clement, the principal of the college who made her discover the theater, and whose name it will borrow as a symbol of her salvation. And then Abel Pinto, the benevolent model that will encourage him to tell the whole story on stage. Marvin became Martin will take all the risks to create this show that, beyond success, will complete the transformation.

[An] unsteady, overlong but rewardingly compassionate character study ...

Top Critic

It's all a bit overlong and over-the-top, although the lead turn from rising star Finnegan Oldfield (Nocturama) is almost enough to make it work.

September 3, 2017 | Full Review…

Fontaine's screenplay has astute things to say about authenticity and artifice, while Oldfield's biggest achievement may be holding his own opposite the mighty Isabelle Huppert, who has a super-cameo as herself.

September 14, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Messily structured, self-conscious and preposterous, buried within its own inelegant framing device.

September 13, 2018 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Fontaine's direction remains so centred on the people that it can't help but move us.

September 11, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

A Eurocentric, warts removed version of the 'it gets better' mantra.
