gues who comes for dinner
31 August 2018 | by mail-04210See all my reviews

A coming of age film , done in a different and somewhat unusual way. I do not share the opinion of "Horst in Transition/10th ofJuly 2018" who belittles the whole endeavour as forgettable. Sure, the stories about coming of age are often similar ( the story of "Romeo and Julia " has been told over and over too) and the idea of becoming "liberated" through "art" from a miserable social background-- has been the theme in "Billy Elliot" and "Fame" and many other films too. But I liked the way this film was done with flash-backs, with a slow moving rythm, with impressive actors-especially the poor white trash family, and the sharp contrasts between the heroes former life and the seemingly aimless search for his destiny in Paris among the rich, the "artsy fartsy", the "would be's" and the losers. Having some knowledge of fine arts, theatre and the gay world helps to like that film- It's not a american popcorn blockbuster for the masses !
