The Man of My Life

Zabou Breitman's 2006 drama is a feast, a psychologically complex, emotionally satisfying idyll in the French countryside during which her success-track characters slow down enough to get in touch with some inner truths. A stressed-out chemist (Bernard Campan) and his neglected wife (Lea Drucker) arrive with their family at a hilltop villa that affords them an excellent view of the man next door skinny-dipping in his pool (Charles Berling). The neighbor, who's gay and angry with his dying homophobic father, makes friends with the less sophisticated family man. Winds of change are symbolized by repeated shots of billowing curtains, as the men's unexpected synergy pushes them to reexamine the boundaries of love and commitment. In French with subtitles. 110 min.
