Storyline

Family ties. Paul is an artist, his current project is to take photos of the faces of men during orgasm. He lives with Martial, his lover. His sister Camille, who's running the family business, takes Paul to the hospital to see their father, who is dying. Paul hasn't seen him in six years, and all his life has believed his father thinks he's ugly and perhaps not even his child. There's no deathbed reconciliation, but subsequent exchanges of Paul with Martial and with Camille bring opportunities for growth and change to this temperamental and self-pitying young man.

an Ozon
9 March 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

You recognize his style from the first scenes. And, like each of his films, this one gives questions, propose sketches of answers. A film about parenthood, pictures and reconciliation. About revenge, love and pain. About the relation with yourself. Well acted, provokative story. Nothing new, at the first sigh. Except the familiar detail- Francois Ozon is the same and the different in each of his films. So, a father, a sister and the love of his life around a young man looking for define himself using an early photo.
