wonderful entertainment and perfect in every regard
15 January 2010 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

The quality of this French tele-movie is so high that I expected it to have been one which received cinematic release.

The English subtitles (on the DVD) are very well crafted and made enjoying the film to the utmost a breeze - stirring every emotion, including plenty of out-loud laughter, and a few tears.

The 24 minute "behind the scenes" extra feature does a great job with supplementary information - in the main part reinforcing my own understanding and appreciation of the filmmakers' fully realised intentions.

I deeply cared about these characters, I loved how their stories evolved. As the writer states, it's not a guide to coming out - but it is certainly an ideal film for fostering awareness of the struggle faced even by "open minded" parents who have discovered that their envisioned future for their child will be needing some radical re-evaluation.

As close to perfect as any film I've seen and fully deserving ten stars.
