Matthias & Maxime

Matthias & Maxime ★★½

While this guy’s career has been fun to follow, with 8 movies in, there’s nothing new here... which is not a bad thing, this guy makes decent coming out movies (and mother-issue movies), and the premise on this one reminded me of Humpday. 
There’s some interesting character moments through the movie, a good performance from Xavier, and not overtly dull (like some others in his cannon), but there’s not too many ideas that kept this engaging across 120 min, and unfortunately lots of cringe... the Harris Dickinson material was horrible, and they kept playing the song “The Rose” (‘some say love, it is a river....’) to create a touching moment... it sucked.
Some parts were definitely good, but I wanted to like this way more.
