[Credits] [Ticktes & Termine] [Trailer]

Suppressed love and an ode to friendship: Matthias & Maxime is a typi­cal Dolan film, full of bound­less ener­gy and romance. Max (Xavier Dolan) and Matthias (Gabriel d’Almeida Freitas) have been best friends sin­ce child­hood. But now Max is hea­ding off to Australia to final­ly get his life tog­e­ther. On their fare­well tour from par­ty to par­ty, the friends meet a film stu­dent who impul­si­ve­ly cas­ts both for a pro­ject. When they then have to kiss on came­ra, it’s as if they’ve been struck by light­ning. Unexpected fee­lings bloom, which Matthias vehe­ment­ly rejects – a reac­tion which in turn hits Max very hard.
