      Ed Koch The Atlantic The long and short of it is that that this road-trip film is not terrible, but it is certainly not a good movie. It lacks a plot and goes nowhere, but the scenes of rural France are magnificent. Jan 17, 2018 Full Review Derek Malcolm London Evening Standard When the French are pretentious, the word gets a whole new meaning. Rated: 1/5 Apr 22, 2010 Full Review Peter Bradshaw Guardian The movie always looks good with an inspired comic-book animated opening sequence, but there is something preposterous about the leads and their smouldering emotions. Rated: 2/5 Apr 16, 2010 Full Review Rich Cline Shadows on the Wall With its meandering, unfocussed narrative, this sometimes feels more like beautiful moving wallpaper than an actual film. But even without much plot, it's a fascinating exploration of identity. Rated: 3.5/5 Apr 22, 2010 Full Review Josh Winning Total Film An award-winner for his short films, Vincent makes the stretch to feature length comfortably enough, even if his meditation on the limits of brotherly love does allow its imagery of wild European landscapes to do more of the talking... Rated: 3/5 Apr 22, 2010 Full Review Nick Davis Nick's Flick Picks It's almost hard to see the movie inside all the recycled beats and diaphanous construction, much less to feel its pulse.

      Audience Member 2 twins traveling to their mom's funeral are so close they resent almost every move of the other. Sibling rivalry that almost ends with horseplay in the ocean. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member This was a masterpiece to say the least. The main thread of this movie is to make it to Spain to be at their mother's funeral, but what happens on the way there is what shapes these two young men. Dialogue comes second to observation and expression. I realized towards the end that the twins had something that is rare to find in actors and in people, an air of mystery and unspoken word. If I'm being honest I initially watched this because I thought this was going to center around forbidden love and all of the fabrics that make a family and also break them. But to my surprise this film let life play out, let emotions and thoughts and the present of youth dominate the screen. This made the film a time capsule of innocence, maturity (in the most fascinating way), and nostalgia. I don't think I'll ever forget this movie, and I plan on making a poster out of it when I go back to the dorms. Thank you Pascal-Alex Vincent for this wonderful film. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Ethereal French road movie about 2 twins travelling through France to Spain by any means necessary to get to the funeral of the mother they have never met. It's basically a tale of a fraternal relationship. There isn't much story. The journey is punctuated with sexual encounters and some rather physical fights between the two brothers. There is a character arc here...kind of, but it is clumsily done. It's very well shot, but there isn't anything memorable and the end of the film is an inelegant finish. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Beautifully rendered feature with the cinematic sensibilities of a short: spare, wistful and specific. Deceptively thoughtful and very well done. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Beautifully shot exploration of brotherhood and intimacy Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Remarkable, Powerfully performed!! This is a breathtaking duo. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Read all reviews
