Enjoyed the story, hated the subtitles, I also recommend for young guys dealing coming out.
Another coming of age, coming out movie that isn’t cringe-making. It seems that the Europeans do these much better than the English speaking countries; a generalisation but it appears that way. You’ll Get Over It, is another example.
What makes this film work is the interaction between all the major characters. Each one maintains their central core and yet manages to make a psychological shift as the action unfolds. The exception to this is the homophobic brother but even he is a fully developed character. Where the film fails is with the subordinate characters who, mainly, become stereotypical; the gay bar scene at le Marais, is crammed full. Secondly, the relationship between the two leads, once the boy admits to being gay, is overly sympathetic to the situation.
However, I highly recommend it, the dialogue is excellent, and it is well paced and has elements of suspense and surprise.
European gay cinema is always many points ahead of it US counterpart in depth and maturity. It's a pity that subtitles turn off so many people. Up there with the best of the English language titles: Edge of Seventeen and Beautiful Thing this is a teen angst, coming out story that works well as it carries several plot lines at once. And Julien Baumgartner is very easy on the eye!

Excellent French language film about a young man coming to terms with himself and being open with those around him before his deceit and lies eat his sole.
