13 May 2016 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

a film who seems have all the virtues. passion, challenge, love, vulnerabilities of lead character, right music,inspired landscape, complex story, good actors and a special subject. Michelangelo Passaniti seems be the perfect choice for be Cal Fournier. maybe because Le Tournois is a kind of version for Le Grand Meaulnes. it could be better and that is obvious. in many scenes the story becomes fake and it is not real surprising. but it preserves the flavor of contemporary French cinema. with its sins including. and becomes, step by step, more than a film about a competition, a film about truth. the truth about yourself, at the end of an age. the truth about others. and, sure, about the life. all presented in decent manner.the fragility of illusions, the need to become yourself, the humor and, sure, Budapest are the spices who defines a film remarkable for its grace.
