It’s the 1990s and Jacques (Pierre Deladonchamps) is a solitary writer living in Paris. He hasn’t even turned 40, but already mistrusts that the best in life is yet to come. Arthur (Vincent Lacoste) is a student living in Rennes, a provincial city in Brittany, who refuses to think that everything in life might not be possible. When Jacques travels to Rennes as a guest of a local theater company that is producing one of his plays, he meets young Arthur, and they begin a wistful affair. Christophe Honoré’s elegant film is awash in the theme of blue. The color is found in every single shot in the movie, creating a magnificent tapestry that evokes - what else? - the blues. A sweet and wistful portrait of two men who will come together as unlikely lovers, finding solace in each other as they navigate illness, desire, adulthood and the passing of time, after the kind of fateful meeting that changes the courses of lives.
