A city in Sète. A bourgeois family in a house in the middle of nowhere clashes with slum-dwellers residing in the projects. A mother and her daughter. Two childhood friends. A disappearance... See full summary »
Gus (played by Guillaume Canet) suffers from narcolepsy. He falls asleep all the time and has dreams about supermen from comics (Van Damme would play one of these supermen, a short & secret appearance).
Romy (Diane Kruger) is on holiday in the USA with her French husband, Richard (Gilles Lellouche). But the journey quickly turns into a settling of old scores for this worn out couple. After an ultimate fight, Romy decides to break free. She cuts off her ties to a stable and secure life that has become alienating and escapes to the unknown.
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
Went to watch this movie hesitating about I would like it, and I have to say the film becomes much more interesting once the half hour has passed, the leader actor seems to feel more comfortable into the story, and also do the watchers. The songs, the blue and grey photography, and the misse en scene really catch you more and more. Guillaume is a boy really cute who loves his mother, his aunts, his grandmother, and all the womwn around him. He tries to get along with his thinkings and his feelings despite his father, who doesn't agree with his ideas and wants him to play football and to be a boy just like his brothers are. The movie starts slowly but goes faster and deeper and when you realize, the film will be over and you'll leave the theatre really pleased to meet Gullaume and his family.
