My Men / Un début prometteur (15)

debutprometteurEmma Luchini’s second full-length feature (after Sweet Valentine) is a family affair. Based on the novel by her partner author Nicolas Rey and with father Fabrice in one of the lead roles, this tragi-comedy has top class credentials. And casting comic actor and stand-up comedian Manu Payet against type as the alcoholic, drug-taking, chronically disillusioned Martin is a master stroke. Martin (Payet) returns to the family home and takes up residence in a mobile home parked in his father’s garden. His younger brother Gabriel (Zacharie Chasseriaud) is delighted to have Martin back and soon drags him into his plan to seduce Mathilde (Veerle Baetens), an older woman with whom he has fallen madly in love…
