This elegant, beautiful, evocative film offers a portrait of innocent affection and then it becomes something incredibly different.

Seldom apart, best friends Leo and Remi seem to be joined at the hip. Even their nights are spent sleeping over at one another’s houses, each set of parents treat the boys as their own.

On the first day of a new school term, surrounded by an unfamiliar group of students, the boys cling to one another. In the cafeteria, a surprisingly forward girl puts the question to them, “Are you together?” and Leo tenses up, explaining that they’re just “close,” like brothers but a wedge has been introduced to their friendship.

This film has been described by some film critics as the best indie/international film of 2022.
