Did You Know?

In the sequence when Loïc catches the train back to Bulle to head to work at the factory, he scans his ID at the factory. If you slow down the play and advance a frame at a time, you'll see that this is Pierre Chatagny's actual work ID.See more »

beautiful film, 17 May 2006
Author: joelglevi from United States

I enjoyed this film. It has a lyrical quality, and it is essentially a character portrait. Many Americans will tire of the film quickly, because they expect clearer character development and a more coherent plot. But if these qualities ate not essential to you and you like French films, you will find this movie touching and memorable. (I know that this is a Swiss, not French, production, but I think most Americans will view it as stylistically French.) The main character and Chatagny's performance, reminded me greatly of Joseph Gordon-Levitt's character and performance in "Mysterious Skin." (Many Americans will prefer this movie, though the subject matter is darker.) I love both films, both performances. I hope to see more films with Pierre Chatagny.
