It's a narratively hollow film based on a single action, the consequence of that action and 100 minutes of filler featuring every character reacting despondently to said consequence. Visually inspired by Xavier Dolan's 'It's Only the End of the World' (both of which undeservedly won the exact same prize at Cannes), it employs the cinematic language in eye-rolling and frustrating fashion, making you wonder - if this is considered cinematic - once and for all if cinema's glory days are truly over.

So visually well crafted and designed, and so well acted, especially by Dambrine, that it's a shame that its organic emotional impact is played out by the midpoint - after the major turn, the film has remarkably little to say in relation to its potent emotional themes of grief, attending guilt, and the pressures of homophobia; an emotional conclusion doesn't feel earned and therefore becomes borderline manipulative. Sorta worthwhile for the genuinely affecting and delicately told first half.

A beautiful downer. To call the acting natural would be like calling the sun a bit warm or saying that I sort of like movies. The first act is the best part, and I did not expect the film to go where it went after that. While I think that the aftermath would probably be messier in real life, I nevertheless found it pretty affecting as well.

There are times when Dhont lays it on too thick—the tears are earned, but jerked a bit vigorously in the end—but his observations about casual homophobia and the mourning process are mostly astute and the performances are exceptionally good.
