A movie anyone can relate to
30 January 2007 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

A good swiss movie is rare enough, so I can only recommend this one. Basically, the story starts in Lausanne, Switzerland. Lionel is gay and his whole family is fine with it, he works at the local radio station. Around Christmas, he discover that part of his family comes from Poland. He gets totally upset with it, to a point where his sister decides to take him to Poland, in order for him to discover this country he comes from. This movie is just really authentic. All the characters are really touching, and you can relate to a lot of situations. Being gay or straight isn't the matter here, the idea is just to witness how a simple information can turn your way of thinking upside down. Overall : part romantic, part touching, part funny... A bit slow now and then, but that's the only negative point I could find... Very good movie!
