A rather hollow piece of filmmaking
13 August 1999 | by (Coimbra, Portugal) – See all my reviews

"Le Garçu" offers the obvious, but the director, Maurice Pialat, only insinuates and never lets his actors to come up with anything original and fresh. Soon the camera seems to get tired to follow the same people all over around and not even the charm of Gerard Depardieu is enough to save this rather hollow piece of filmmaking. The actors are always on their own and their mannerisms depend on the reaction immediately before, so the dialogue seems so improvised that we begin to accept it as a truly realistic piece of writing. The young star, Antoine Pialat, offers himself as Antoine Pialat, and nothing dramatic comes from his character: he only exposes his qualities and refuses to act, and that explains why he is so handsomely irresistible. In French.
