Lovely and amazing
17 September 2006 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Saw L'homme de sa vie at the Toronto Film Festival and found it lovely and amazing. Beautifully filmed, tenderly directed (by Zabou Breitman) portrayal of the relationship between a married man and his gay neighbor. Good use of symbolism and subtext, and wonderful atmosphere that transports you to the gorgeous French countryside. Convincing performances by Bernard Campan and Charles Berling. The story could have been sappy, but a real relationship develops from an all-night conversation. In a way, I was reminded of Brokeback Mountain (the short story), where a campfire conversation transforms the two. But L'homme is not a straightforward love story, more of a transformation, an awakening of a man who had been contentedly sleepwalking through life who discovers that he can 'hear the violins.'
