Getting Over 'It'
16 October 2005 | by NJMoonSee all my reviews

YOU'LL GET OVER IT is yet another in a wave of French coming out films to hit the American video market. They all seem to cover familiar territory - even overlapping in specifics at times - but each has a unique point of view. This is another teleplay for French TV, coming two years after JUST A QUESTION OF LOVE, which set a pretty high mark for the genre. Here, a high school swim team champ named Vincent is 'outed' (somewhat inadvertently) by a guy who seems infatuated with him, but unable to get a proper handle on his own feeling (conveniently, for the script). The story may or may not be autobiographical because both the lead character and the script writer share the same name (even surname). While the parents in JUST A QUESTION OF LOVE reacted as if their son had murdered babies, Vincent's parents shrug their shoulders and 'get over it' in just a few frames. This leaves the storyline to Vincent's own 'coming to terms' with his sexuality, which (turns out) isn't all that novel or (sadly) dramatic.

The film also seems to have no problem with showing Vincent's carnal relations with his 'girlfriend' Naomie, but shies away from any overt sexual contact between Vincent and boys. Pandering to a hetero audience? Absolutely. The author conveniently relies upon the 'swim team' setting for it's share of male titillation, a tact much more successful employed in THE MAN I LOVE (1997). The closest kin of this film seems to be the English GET REAL, which was far more skillful in relating to it's central figure than OVER IT. Vincent's true personality remains a bit unexplored and the script doesn't do much to help. Worth seeing - especially in context with the other films mentioned - but don't expect too much. If you do, well -- you'll get over it (you'll see).
