Cannes Film Festival - Palme d’Or and Queer Palm nominations
France, 1993. An unexpected encounter in a cinema drastically changes the life of Arthur, a young intellectual film student from the countryside, and that of a thirty-something Paris-based more or less famous writer named Jacques. They flirt, fall madly in love with each other……until Jacques steps backwards and hides himself from Arthur due to his own health condition. In this semi-autobiographical work, Christophe Honoré recreates a France of the 90s and tenderly illustrates how people at that time have learnt to live and love in the moment but also to say goodbye and face the loss of their closest ones.
