....It's not much and however I regard "la Matiouette" as Téchiné's best.For this short work,he forgets his usual pretensions,his desire to give the audience a "deep" "meaningful" film.

Two brothers: one of them has become an actor and lives in Paris;he goes back home and meets his sibling who has stayed in the village where he married "la Matiouette" ,a local girl (hence the title).

The reunion is warm,but they soon discover that now they are worlds apart.little by little ,the conversation becomes less friendly,less kind,and regrets,resentment resurface.

Their reunion will leave them two broken men.

Unlike other Téchiné's works,"La Matiouette" has no stars ,it's filmed in black and white,but,should I have to choose one film from Téchiné,that would be this one.Hard to find but precious.
