The film alternates the images of the events with the reflections of the character’s voice from a place that is still not clear to us, so ‘Dialogue with life’ is based on both what we see and what we hear, and Christophe Honoré He writes very well and shoots words just as well. It is not a brainy story nor is everything explained by those thoughts of the character at a specific moment in his life.

The movie has as central axis to Lucas, his way of assuming the loss, his bewilderment and sexuality, but it wouldn’t be the same without the role played by her mother, played by Juliette BinocheAnd his brother (vincent lacoste). Without the two of them we cannot really understand the protagonist, in the same way that without what happens to Lucas we would not understand the reactions and feelings of the two characters who can best understand him and save him from the abyss.
