While Arthur makes a fuss about being from Brittany and the fact that his two hosts are Parisians, ironically, the actor playing Arthur is a native Parisian, while the other two actors are not. See more »
I have mixed feelings about this movie. The story is not unpleasant, but it's not awesome either. Some other gay films, such as « Call me by your name » and « Beats per minute », moved me more than this one. Moreover, this love affair sounds a bit unrealistic, given the circumstances (disease, distance and age gap). But fortunately, there are nice moments of tenderness (the reunion in Paris), emotion (the last scene) and humor (the ad-lib choreography and the appointment with the black male escort, both with Denis Podalydès). Acting is also quite good. The soundtrack features some fine music, such as the delicate song « Les gens qui doutent ».
