Pierre: Cruelty is not one man wounding another, mutilating or torturing him, severing his limbs or his head, or even making him cry. The true, terrible cruelty is that a man who cuts another off, interrupting him like dots in a sentence, or looking away from him, making him an error of the gaze, an error of judgement, an error like a letter crumpled up after starting it, after writing the date.

User Reviews

Well above your average gay film
13 August 2019 | by scottinhawaii-1See all my reviews

The world has changed a lot since the French New Wave. Audiences have shorter attention spans and don't seem to enjoy literary films as much. I gage if a film is too long by whether I look at my watch in a cinema or pause a streaming one at home to see how mich is left. I did neither on this film.

I was pulled into this film's world. It's yet another film that reminds me that I love the French cinema. This witty, complex, sexy, dramatic, funny, intelligent, literary, romantic, completely honest portrait of gay life in 1993, captured nuances of gay life not seen in American film. The acting is terrific.
