Laurent (Cyrille Thouvenin) lives with his parents Jeanne (Danièle Denie) and Pierre (Idwig Stephane) behind the family Pharmacy. Laurent is secretly gay though he lives with his best girlfriend Carole (Caroline Veyt) who adores him and wholly accepts his sexuality and is content to serve as a 'front' for Laurent's closeted role with his parents. He is not doing well studying agriculture, primarily due to the fact the his close cousin Marc died recently and had been disowned by his aunt and uncle when he announced he was gay. Laurent can only see that he must keep his secret so that his parents (whom he loves deeply) will not be 'injured' by his admitting his sexuality. His marks in school are so poor that he is instructed to do an internship in field agriculture to raise his academic standing. His assigned tutor is Cédric (Stéphan Guérin-Tillié) who lives an openly gay life with his warmly understanding and loving mother Emma (Eva Darlan) in an idyllic garden setting that also serves as Cédric's agricultural research lab.Read more ›
(1) WOW!!......and DOUBLEWOW!! You've just got to hand it to the French. In this reviewer's opinion only they, thus far in "gay filmdom," seem to have been truly capturing that "certain naturalness" all of us look for in a male couple's touching, kissing and relating to one another. All of you know what it is; it's a "something" which American directors have merely come close to achieving, perhaps in such films** as C. Jay Cox's "Latter Days" and Julie Davis's "All Over the Guy." All this leads to a couple of big questions: Why does it seem, in practically all American gay films, that the act of a kiss most often comes across as "just a task" which has to be accomplished (and in front of the camera to boot---isn't that so embarrassing!) And what about even the simplest passing touch between partners in a scene? Why would a US actor, in preparing for a gay role, never think of doing something as small but meaningful as that? Whatever the answer, our actors mostly just don't (and American directors do not seem to take the time to ensure that they do, or even to "instruct" them on kissing halfway decently, for that matter). If our directors are going to spend all that money and effort, why not do it right? In summing up this lead-in, it has to be again asked: why is it so natural and easy for the French? (see, also, that 1997 French title, "The Man I Love")(or France's 2000 "Come Undone" with its beach-side copulation scene).
(2) Moving on now, more directly into this film, it's got to be said that these 2 French actors have Chemistry (that's spelled with a capital "C"......and, well, you just gotta make the "H", the "E", the "M" and all the rest of 'em, capital letters, too).Read more ›
