Canada, 2019, 119'

Cast: Gabriel Freitas, Xavier Dolan, Pierre-Luc Funk, Samuel Gautier
Xavier Dolan turned 30 and this is his eighth film, so today no one thinks of calling it enfant terrible, as the Canadian director became famous, bursting with I Killed My Mother when he was 19.


His work becomes more harmonious and more and more his - recognizable by its rich dialogues, its beauty, its pleasantly sticky soundtrack and the specific sensuality in which the unspoken draws the most. Expectedly, Matthias and Maxim is super talkative but also so gentle. In this story for two boys, who are childhood friends who probably love each other more than they can accept, there is such a thrilling love scene that you stop swallowing so as not to interrupt. Dolan himself plays Maxim, a young man with a difficult mother and a red scar, who wants to escape and start again in Australia. The handsome Matthias is a friend of his, part of a noisy group for whom it is now most important to advance in his career as a lawer. When a weekend at a villa by the lake, the two are invented to kiss for a student's short film, the fragile barrier that protects them from one another breaks. But most of all it hurts and even after the end we do not know if the pain will go away. Another thing a Dolan's movie is known for.
