FRENCH FILM FESTIVAL 2019: MATTHIAS AND MAXIME

Xavier Dolan

Book Tickets

Maxime (Xavier Dolan) is preparing to move from his hometown of Montreal to Australia, leaving behind his troubled mother (Anne Dorval) and boisterous group of twenty-something friends, including lifelong best pal Matthias (Gabriel D’Almeida Freitas). A few months before his departure, the gang spends the weekend at a lakeside retreat, where Matthias and Maxime agree to take part in an experimental student film, which requires them to kiss. After it happens, a change occurs between them, one they cannot articulate, but neither can they deny its powerful impact…

Director’s Note: French-Canadian auteur Xavier Dolan’s new film is a resonant and tender story about friendship, love and wild hearts, told through autumnal colours, and an immersive piano soundtrack.

Screening as part of IFI French Film Festival – November 13th to 24th. Multi-film tickets available directly from the IFI Box Office: 5 films for €50, 10 films for €90.
