Some have gone and some remain....
4 January 2020 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

Sonny ,all along your life,some people you meet are just passing through :these are the shooting stars ; others will remain :those are the staying stars (hence the title).

Crystal clear ,huh?This movie is rather short (75 min) ,but it is very talky ,including soul-searching, meditation,job interviews ,interminable conversations about the meaning of life, the cancerous dad's soon-to-come death-he gave up his treatment .Only the father plays his game well,injecting more emotion than his co-stars the hero is not particularly endearing ,essentially concerned about his own persona ; his pal ,Loris ,seems to be out of the late sixties hip movies dealing with Indian philosophies ;the girl seems a bit arrogant ,but in the end ,bland and insignificant .

Some call that artistic,I'll call it arty.The story is desperately short of humor,impact is lacking.Even the splendid landscapes of Britanny are badly filmed.

If this movie teaches you how to lead a fulfilled life ,then I'd rather be dead.
