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.

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.

Best by a mile are newcomer Jules Porier as the young Marvin, a pale boy with gamin grace, and Grégory Gadebois as his father, a phlegmy walrus of a man forever exposing expanses of flesh in sleeveless denim and distended briefs.

A cascade of clichés made palatable and cumulatively touching by a very fine cast.
