A film by Xavier Dolan. In French and English with German subtitles.
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.
