After his gay cousin dies from hepatitis, young Laurent, who lives with his best friend Carole, falls in love with Cedric, a plant scientist. He's afraid to inform his conservative parents that he is gay.
smart, beautiful, touching film. not only for story itself but for inspired manner to use different cultural pieces for a precise puzzle. humor, cultural impact, the family relationship, the identity of a foreign community and its circles. and , sure, the love story. after many homosexual movies, its basic virtue is its special freshness. not a lesson, not a speech about sexual minority rights. only a correct exercise about choice and tradition. and about the impact between worlds. last scene is splendid. and the Turkish bath scenes - full of delicate poetry. amusing, bitter, realistic. a good film. and little more.
