In this well-made coming out story we live through the reactions of the parents more than the gay son and his younger brother.
The characters are all well realized and you come to care for them all. This has none of the sensationalism which many coming out stories have, in fact it's more about a marriage under stress than a true coming-out story.
The story is very French in the way that its told and I'm pretty certain that this was filmed in the same house as Crustacés et coquillages (2005) another French film that touched on some of the same issues in a less serious way.
While this film lacked the moments of epiphany and/or life changing scenes that I require to give a film a 9 or a 10 It's well worth the viewing time and I highly recommend it. I'll most likely see this one again.
