Lie with Me (2022). 1h 38m

“As is the book, the story here is autobiographical and it is felt. The movie captures that quite well, thereu0026#39;s a rawness to it that makes it feel like youu0026#39;re watching these events as they are unfolding whether they are in the present or the flashbacks. A movie that goes back and forth between the present and the past is nothing new, and someone reminiscing on their first love isnu0026#39;t either, but this film does a good job of it in the way itu0026#39;s structured. The flashbacks actually feel like memories, as bittersweet as they can be, and contrast well with Stephane now as heu0026#39;s still hurt by them and yet cherish them.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe whole cast is great but there are standouts. Guillaume De Tonquédec is the only actor in the cast I knew by sight but Iu0026#39;ve seen him more in comedic roles – at least thatu0026#39;s the memory I have of him – but he nails it. His internal emotional turmoil reads perfectly as he comes back into town and meets Lucas. In the present scenes, itu0026#39;s mostly him and Victor Belmondo – famous last name and familiar features but the first time Iu0026#39;ve heard or seen him in anything – they are good but not as poignant as the flashbacks. Julien De Saint-Jean and Jérémy Gillet are just amazing in this film, their scenes give life and weight to the scenes in the present. These flashbacks are intense, believable, and capture gay teenage love well.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eLie with Me / Arrête avec tes Mensonges is sweet considering what itu0026#39;s about, even light at times but it works.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003e@garcwrites.”
