Presque Rien (2000) Come Undone


Presque rien (2000)


U zadnja dva mjeseca sam nekako osamljen, Ispočetka mi je prijala samoća , ali sada mi teško pada. Baš mi nedostaje....on
Noćas mi je kao i uvijek poželio laku noć, al teško da može biti laka kada ti neko toliko nedostaje. Tješi me da ćemo se uskoro vidjeti!
Po netu sam malo surfovao i nisam našao ništa što bi bilo vrijedno pomena u ovom blogu.
Zato sam izvukao stare DVD i prelistao filmove koje imam.
Učinjelo mi se da sam ranije predstavio ovaj film , ali pregledavajući blog ustanovio sam da ga nema, kao ni Grande Ecole.
A obadva filma su vrijedna za svaku kolekciju filmova sa ovom tematikom.
Presque rien ili Come Undone je film o prvoj mladenačkoj ljubavi. Osamnaestogodišnji Mathieu dolazi na ljetovanje sa depresivnom majkom i sestrom.
I tu upoznaje Cedrica , lokalnog momka koji i ne krije previše da je gay. Nastaje prava ljubavna romansa. Prva ljubav se zauvijek pamti, zar ne.
Nastavak možda već znate iz vlastitog iskustva. Iza svake prve ljubavi dolazi druga, pa treća i tako dok ne naiđete na onu koja traje čitav život.
Ovaj film nam priča priču o onoj prvoj, o dilemama , strepnji, strahu, o želji da vam se svaki trenutak produži.
Interesantan film koji se nemože svrstati u stereotipne gay coming out filmove. Majka iako depresivna prihvata sina onakvim kakav jeste, sestra takođe iako ponekad zlobno, Cedericov otac koji pita Mathieua: "Jesi i ti momak od mog sina" čine da ovaj film nema onu tragičnost odbacivanja koje srećemo u sličnim filmovima.
Toplo Vam preporučujem da pogledate ovu romansu.
Na ovaj film je priljepljen engleski titl pa se nadam da vam neće biti problem da ga pogledate.

English:

Presque rien (meaning Almost Nothing, which is also the UK release title; the U.S. title is Come Undone) is a 2000 French film directed by Sebastien Lifshitz, depicting a stormy romance between two 18-year-olds (One who is upper middle class and another who is working class) set in Brittany and what remains of that relationship eighteen months later.
Mathieu (Jérémie Elkaďm), is spending his summer vacation at the sea before starting to attend college in the fall to become an architect. His mother is deeply depressed because of the death of his baby brother from cancer, and he and his snotty younger sister cannot get along.

Then he meets Cedric at the beach (Stéphane Rideau, also the object of gay desires in several films, including Les roseaux sauvages), who is attractive and obviously looking for a boyfriend.

After the first shy kisses and embraces, the two boys begin a steamy affair, and Lifshitz does not hesitate to show that with realism.

A parallel plotline focuses on Mathieu eighteen months later, as he is recovering from the shock of their separation. Mathieu having tried to commit suicide, his psychiatrist sends him back to the small seaside town to learn to deal with what happened. While Lifshitz does not explicitly say why their relationship failed, the impression is conveyed that their characters are simply too different.

The film ends on a hopeful note, when Mathieu meets Pierre (Nils Ohlund), another former boyfriend of Cedric's, and finally gets the feeling he has found someone who understands him.
