Storyline

Mrs. Gallienne, a rather temperamental upper middle-class lady, has three children, two of whom she considers as her sons and another she calls Guillaume. Logically indeed, the latter teenage creature does not picture himself as a boy, rather as a girl or at best as a homosexual. But how can a mother act in such an objectionable way? And why? Through a series of painful chain of experiences, Guillaume will discover little by little who he is actually and will manage to break free from her pernicious influence. Written by Guy Bellinger

Egocentric
19 May 2014 | by (France) – See all my reviews

This movie can hardly fall in the comedy category since the humour is almost imperceptible, it boils down to a succession of often boring slices of life, assembled together with not much coherence.

Indeed the main problem of this « comedy » is the absence of a plot, there is no real point developed, the only common denominator being the identity quest of a main character who is unlovable, almost annoying.

The narration is chaotic because of these monologues on stage that really don't create a good dynamic and that stand out a lot too much, on the form and content, from the tone of the rest of the movie.

Guillaume Galliene's intention surely seems sincere and sensitive but the end result, in addition to being unsound and unfinished, is a bit egocentric.

A big disappointment considering the raving critics and awards it received.
