The story of Tom, who is in the grip of grief and depression following the death of his lover. When he meets the family of the deceased, it is revealed the mother was not aware of her son's sexual orientation, or his relationship with Tom either, for that matter.Written by
more than good/bad work, it is a film by Xavier Dolan. and that fact reflects talent and ambition but seems be only beginning. a dark, almost confuse film who has as support the common points with another films from same genre. a remarkable performance - Lise Roy -, interesting music , well dialogs. but without roots for characters intentions or actions. and that fact does entire story in deep fog. at final,beautiful film, nice images, interesting cinematography. and after the applause for Xavier Dolan - as director and actor, the taste of experiment. good homework but not really enough. the themes are the good thing. the atmosphere - in same measure. but, at the second view, it could seem a form of waist of spices. it is not a problem - it is only a Xavier Dolan film. the colors, the message, the search. each personal in high measure.
