Good French-Canadian Film
What struck my most about this film was that, just twenty minutes in, I got the feeling that I was watching a totally new kind of film. It’s different from anything else. You don’t notice it at first though. It follows the same sorts of conventions as other films, but at a certain moment I realized it had a completely unique tone to it which I personally had never seen before.
I don’t know if it was deliberate. I don’t know if it’s something that’s existed in other films, but it’s certainly something I don’t recall having ever seen myself. It almost feels like what some would call realism, but it’s not. And since it’s not quite that, it ends up being something completely different. It’s subtle at first, but it never lets up. The wonderful camerawork only adds to it. Recommend.
Not a bad film, just a very obvious one.
Xavier Dolan, one-time enfant terrible of French-Canadian cinema, hasn’t so much mellowed as become conventional. If the plot of his latest film, “Matthias & Maxime” is a little off-the-wall, the treatment is alarmingly predictable. Two male friends agree to take part in a girlfriend’s student film in a scene where they have to kiss or indeed ‘make out’. Dolan, for some reason, cuts away from the kiss itself and builds his film around the impact their actions has on their lives and their friendship.
It’s beautifully filmed and well acted by both Dolan and Gabriel D’Almeida Freitas in the title roles as well as by a handful of people you would hardly want to spend time with normally and therein lies the rub; there’s no-one to empathize with and nothing happens to make us care very much about Matthias & Maxime and their hang-ups. I’m not disputing Dolan’s very obvious talent and it’s still hard to believe he’s only thirty-one, (he made his first feature aged only twenty), but these male-orientated and family-orientated psychodramas are starting to get a little dull. This might first look like he’s branching out but there’s nothing here we haven’t seen before.
